Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Each term, every year group has a key question to answer, e.g. Are all great stories written? The children, along with their teacher will inquire and investigate their question. Below are the overviews for Art which tell you what questions the children will be investigating and give you a brief outline of their learning.
