Art and Design and Technology

Curriculum Intent

At Markington Primary and Nursery  School we believe that creativity is a valued skill which we enhance and embrace. We are committed to ensuring that our pupils become confident and enthusiastic creative thinkers.  We encourage children to develop ‘enquiring minds’ which ‘grow a love of learning’ and ‘our rich, creative curriculum’ provides opportunities to use art and design in imaginative and cross-curricular ways.

As a school and in accordance with the National Curriculum’s expectations, we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • Become proficient in drawing painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

Through our teaching of Art and Design Technology we aim to:

  • To develop in each pupil a positive attitude towards Art and Design Technology, and an awareness of the fascinating aesthetic and creative aspects of the subjects.
  • To provide pupils with the skills and motivation produce work of a high standard.
  • To enable pupils to develop the ability to identify a problem, select the most appropriate  solution given task and choose equipment to check and evaluate their results.
  • To ensure pupils are provided with opportunities to use Art and Design Technology in other areas of the curriculum and in real life.
  • To enable pupils to work independently and in co-operation with others.
  • To develop confidence in pupils ability in Art and Design Technology and to encourage independence and perseverance.
