Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. Art and Design at Steeple Bumpstead Primary School aims to 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.
Spaced Retrieval Practice Approach
Our curriculum is structured to introduce and revisit knowledge, following the principles of instruction, guided by understanding how the memory works and cognitive load theory.
The national curriculum for art and design aims 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
