Art & Design Curriculum Scheme 2020-21

By the end of key stage 1, pupils will be able to use a wide range of materials creatively to design and produce their own products. They will develop their imagination, techniques and skills in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. They will be able to identify similarities and differences between different techniques and disciplines and make comments on the work of artists. Through their own designs, they will be able to share personal thoughts, feelings and experiences and make links between their own work and work from other artists.
