Art & Design and Technology
Our vision for the Art and Design & Design Technology curriculum is to stimulates imagination and creativity; involving pupils in a range of visual, tactile and sensory experiences, which enables them to communicate what they see, think and feel, through the use of the elements of colour, texture, form and pattern. Art and Design & Design Technology promotes careful observation and an appreciation of the world around us. Pupils explore ideas and meanings through studying the work of artists and designers, which also inspires future creativity. Through learning about the roles and functions of art, pupils explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and on different periods and cultures. DT allows pupils to learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. The ADDT curriculum inspires all learners to take responsibility for their learning. It makes rich connections allowing pupils to develop new understanding and build on what they already know. Through the use of the design, creating and evaluating processes in every art and DT lesson, pupils reflect on what they are learning and how to make further improvements. Pupils build artist resilience as they explore through trial and error. Pupils have excellent subject vocabulary that we embed from Early Years. A multi-sensory and engaging approach to teaching and learning, supports pupils to remember in the long-term and continuously build on their knowledge, understanding and skills. We creatively connect ADDT learning with mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to undertake engaging and expose pupils to meaningful STEAM projects.
