How do we teach Art and Design?

 

The teaching and implementation of the Art and Design Curriculum at Bridekirk Dovenby CE Primary School is based on the National Curriculum and delivered using the Kapow Scheme which ensures a well-structured approach to this creative subject.

The children are taught Art during a weekly lesson following the Kapow Scheme.  The chosen topics from the scheme may link with History or Geography topics.  Staff have flexibility to choose an Art & Design or Design and Technology topic which they feel best fits the rest of their curriculum.  This is shown in the Long Term Plan for 2021-22 academic year.

 

Through the Kapow Scheme, the work of famous national and international artist is covered but also allows the flexibility to cover the work of local artists.

Our children’s learning is further enhanced by annual an ‘Arts Days’ where children work independently or collaboratively in smaller mixed age groups which enables them to access more detailed and skills based activities.  Teaching staff including TA’s are supported to plan an ‘arts’ activity linked to different themes, such as ‘Arts from around the World’, ‘The formal elements of Art’ or ‘Celebrations’. 

At Bridekirk Dovenby CE Primary School, children in Early Years and Key Stage One produce a collaborative sketch book alongside their teacher, who models sketch book working.

In Lower Key Stage Two, children have their own sketchbook.  Input into their sketchbooks is ‘taught’ or guided by teachers following CPD led by the Art & Design Co-ordinator.

In Upper Key Stage Two, children are encouraged to develop their own style for producing sketchbook pages linked to the scheme lessons in preparation for Key Stage Three.
