Curriculum Design

at St Wilfrid’s CE Primary School

Art is far more than a series of technical skills. Our holistic curriculum nurtures creative thinking skills and helps ensure pupils learn through art, as well as about art.

Our Art Curriculum, and our Design & Technology Curriculum run in cycles, with Art taught in the first half of each half-term (Autumn 1, Spring 1 and Summer 1) and Design & Technology taught in the second half of each half-term (Autumn 2, Spring 2 and Summer 2).

Within each key stage, we have planned a balance between the development of skills in the main artform areas and with a variety of media. From Reception to Year 6, children will continually develop their understanding of drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and collage.

Please see the downloads below of our Topic Overviews and more detailed Termly Subject Overviews for our Art curriculum. The plans for each key stage build on prior knowledge and skills:
