Art

Intent

We believe that Art at Sunnyfields stimulates creativity and imagination whilst giving the child unique opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. 

The children use a wide range of materials and learn the techniques and skills of drawing, painting, collage, printing, sculpture and digital art through a skills based curriculum with many opportunities to apply these skills across the curriculum. 

They learn to develop their own styles, be inventive and creative whilst developing critical thinking skills in making links to other curriculum area, world culture and the world around us. 

Implementation

Every year group learns the core art techniques of painting and drawing, whilst other techniques of collage, sculpture, printing and digital art are visited in a quality manner across KS1 and KS2.
