ART

 

In Southglade we have a wide and varied curriculum and through our book based topics. We now teach art in a block as one of our curriculum drivers. This means it will have in depth coverage and the children will be able to create some really exciting projects. We will  link our themes into our art work. These can be seen displayed throughout the school and classrooms.

Each year group will  look at using a range of mediums and develop their drawing, painting and sculpture. During sessions learning about colour, pattern, texture, line and space. As they move through the school they have a sketch book which records their work and shows the progression

Please see our art progression maps for the skills they will cover and build upon in each year group.

We also cover art in our Awe and Wonder weeks and theme days. Every year we have the Bestwood cultural week were we study the arts for the afternoons during this week.

Our progression ladders show the skills and techniques which the children build up on year by year.

 

 

 

Below you will find our updated arts and art policy. Here is also the progression skills for each year group and the road map for details of what each year group will study.
