Each learning journey is central to the teaching and this is made evident to the children. The learning journey incorporates all the skills they will be learning within the unit; therefore, children are able to understand how one lesson builds on another within the journey.


By presenting our learning this way, children have opportunities to explore different mediums for creating art, drawing on historical artists for inspiration and understanding how different cultures and periods in time influence what art is created.


We develop children with the following essential characteristics to help them become artists:

  • Develop the skills to experiment, invent and create their own pieces of work
  • Enable them to think critically about pieces of art
  • Understanding how art creates and shapes our history
  • Know how art contributes to culture, creativity and wealth of a nation
