art and design engages, inspires and challenges our children, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art. They are taught how art and design can contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our world. We encourage children to develop their creative and imaginative talents through learning skills and techniques, and using a variety of materials and tools; this They learn to appreciate works of art and use artistic language to describe paintings, sculptures and other artefacts. We want our children to be able to explore and record their ideas learning how to evaluate and analyse creative works using subject specific vocabulary.
