Art and Design Technology

Our curriculum is at the heart of our school and is carefully designed to support the learning journey of the whole child and enable them to achieve success.

We want no day to be ordinary and strive to put the creativity into each and every day. 

During art sessions, children have the opportunity to observe, discuss and create, there is also time for them to evaluate their own and other pupils’ work.  Lessons are structured around the children’s half-termly IPC topic and reflect and build upon what they are learning in their other lessons. Children create individually, in partners and collaboratively and they sculpt, collage, draw - using a wide range of media - or paint with poster paints, watercolours, acrylics, fabric paints and coloured pastels.

Our subject leader for Art and Design and DT is Miss Berryman.

Our essential learning objectives for Art and Design are to enable children:

  • To develop ideas
  • To master techniques
  • To take inspiration from the great artists and designers

At Edenbridge Primary School, we place great importance on children’s understanding of art. Children learn about its place in history, about how it features in our and other people’s cultures and they learn how to produce artwork using different skills and media. There is a progression of skills from EYFS to Year 6 which teachers highlight to show techniques and skills taught each half term.

We also have an annual themed Art Week which concludes with an open exhibition for Parents and children to share their learning together.  Our whole school, including our youngest Nursery children participate in this.
