Art and Design


1. Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences

2. Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques

3. Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design

4. Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.


At Minet Junior School our Art curriculum aims to inspire and challenge pupils, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills to be able to experiment, invent and create their own works of art.  Children are given opportunities to explore and evaluate Artists and communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form and pattern. As pupils progress, they should gain a deeper understanding of how Art and Design reflects and shapes our history, and how it contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our world. We want our children to use the local area as inspiration, to learn from other cultures and to respect diversity.



The teaching and implementation of the Art and Design Curriculum at Minet Junior School is based on the National Curriculum and linked to topics to ensure a well-structured approach to this creative subject. Areas covered include: sculpting, printing, textiles and pointillism. The children's learning is further enhanced with whole school Art days where the children have the opportunity for collaborative working and exploring the different styles and techniques of a range of artists.



Ongoing assessments take place throughout the year. The children work towards an end of unit project. Whilst working towards completing their final piece, teachers use this information to inform future lessons and ensure children are supported appropriately. This data is analysed on a termly basis to inform and address any trends or gaps in attainment.
