The National Curriculum

Key Stage 1


Pupils are introduced to a wide range of materials and how they can be used. They develop skills in drawing, painting and sculpture and develop techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape form and space. Pupils learn about famous artists and their techniques and how to apply these into their own art work.



Key Stage 2


Pupils build upon and develop the skills learnt in Key Stage 1, however they are exposed to a wider range of materials. Pupils are encouraged to critically assess their work and expand on their knowledge of artists and designers from the past and present.
