Art and Design


Art enables children to develop their creative imagination, enabling them to communicate what they see, feel and think through a range of tools, media and materials. During their time at Bredhurst C of E Primary School, children are given regular opportunities to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Skills and techniques are taught progressively to ensure that all children are able to learn and practise in order to develop as they move through the school. Children’s interests are captured through theme learning, ensuring that links are made in a cross-curricular way, giving children motivation and meaning for their learning. Throughout the key stages, children’s experience of art is enriched by finding out about famous artists, craft makers and designers (past and present) and exploring our local environment for inspiration. We aim to ensure that all children are given high quality experiences, including those who may not have these opportunities outside of school.
