Welcome toBilton Infant School‘Be the best we can be’

Art

Long term sequence

What do we want our curriculum to achieve?

  • Equip pupils to successfully think, work and communicate like an artist.
  • Develop pupils’ oracy and vocabulary skills to enable them to use artistic language meaningfully when talking about their work and the work of others.

How do we fulfil this?

Our KS1 Art curriculum is organised into blocks with each block covering a particular set of artistic disciplines, including drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles, 3D and collage.

 

Vertical progression in each discipline has been deliberately woven into the fabric of the curriculum so that pupils can revisit key disciplines throughout their learning journey at increasing degrees of challenge and complexity.

 

In addition to the core knowledge required to be successful within each discipline, the curriculum outlines key aspects of artistic development in the Working Artistically section. Each module will focus on developing different aspects of these competencies. 

 

Working artistically

ShapeLineColourValueFormTextureSpace
Shape is a flat (2D) area surrounded by an outline or edgeLines are used to show movement and mood.Colour is used to convey atmosphere and mood.Value is the intensity of colour and depends on the amount of white added.Artists use form when they create sculptures. These are 3D shapesTexture is the look and feel of a surface.Space in artwork makes a flat image look like it has form.

 

Central to the learning modules are activities designed to develop pupils’ oracy and vocabulary skills to enable them to use artistic language meaningfully when talking about their work and the work of others.
