Intent, implementation and impact

At Field End Junior School we believe that children should have a high-quality art education that engages, immerses and enables them to reflect on their personal skills to become confident artists.  Throughout KS2, children will learn key skills to build upon each year, to take forward and consolidate in-line with our connected curriculum across other subjects.  All children should have the opportunity to see real, inspirational Art, analyse and critique with their appreciation, reasoning and opinions. Children learn that art is universal language and be equipped to be imaginative, creative whilst taking risks.
The teaching and implementation of the Art curriculum at Field End Junior School is based on the National Curriculum and supported by a creative and well-structured approach. Children develop artistic skills each year recalling on their prior knowledge and building upon their skills learnt in years prior. Throughout the year, children will cover the 5 domains which consist of painting, sketching, 3D modelling, printing and textiles/collaging. Through differing media, we encourage pupils to develop their creativity and imagination through using an assortment of skills and techniques and by using a variety of materials and tools. The school utilises Kapow as an additional teaching resource, which allows children to watch informative videos to deepen their progressive artistic skillset.  In addition, every year children will look at 3 different artists, craft makers and designers and learn the historical and cultural development of their art forms. Through observing and appreciating a variety of artists work from all cultures, we encourage children to be inspired and take influence from different art forms and become artists in their own right.

Progression of skills 2022-2023
