Art & Design and Design Technology
Art & Design Intent
Children are given an opportunity to explore different media and techniques to improve their skills and confidence throughout there time here. Work often starts from a well known artist or architect to excite and inspire our children and helps to build knowledge and appreciation as well as skills. Our children are encouraged to work in the style of other artists and them to develop their own personal style as their knowledge expands. This enables our children to excel in their own creative style and become confident in a wide range of media.
Deisgn Technology Intent
In DT, children often start from a 'need' and explore ways that materials can be used, joined and combined to create an end product. Our children are encouraged to evaluate the work of others in planning their own designs before the excitement of making their products. These are then evaluated in a similar way, enabling them to suggest and make improvements to enable them to excel.
