Art and Design

Art & Design at Bishop's Waltham Junior

Here at Bishop's Waltham Junior School, we believe that enjoyment of Art and skills progression goes hand in hand, which is why our latest curriculum delivery ensures that projects are ‘meaty’ enough to really explore in depth.

Recently, the Art planning has undergone a huge re-construction.  Now, each project encompasses more than one ‘skill’, in line with the latest HIAS recommendations.  Children enjoy projects which overtly teach the art elements as well as the skills required for effective outcomes in different media.

The curriculum overview for art and design can be read below. Many of the projects directly link in with the Topics studied in each year-group; others study a specific art movement or influence.  Within this link, you can discover the outcomes for each unit, and can view some examples children’s work.
