‘Working Together for Excellence’

Art and Design

Art and Design gives children the opportunity to explore their ideas by experimenting, inventing and creating their own varied works of art using a range of materials. At Weyford school, we ensure that each Key stage is following the National Curriculum guidelines.


In the Early Years Foundation Stage, children are encouraged to practise handling, controlling and moving through drawing, painting and the use of clay. 


In Key stage 1, the skills are developed into exploring colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. We do this though the use of textiles, printing, collage and even 3D design in ICT.


In Key stage 2, children are encouraged to keep sketch books of their ideas, showing the design and planning process as well as the end result. They continue to learn about different artists and designers in history. These areas are covered through the use of collage, portraits, papier mache and painting.

Emily in Year 5 has done some brilliant artwork at home recently! She has used some vibrant colours to create some nature scenes.

We had a great Arts Week this week and an even better Art Gallery! The children have worked so hard and were so proud to be able to show off their amazing work. Thank you to everyone who came and bought a beautiful piece of framed artwork!
