The aims of the Art curriculum
Rosary children will embody and experience the highest forms of creativity. It is a universal language enabling all pupils to engage, inspire and be challenged. Art will equip pupils with knowledge and skills in drawing, painting, sculpting and other art and craft activities to experiment, invent and create their own pieces of Art. Our children will know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
At the Rosary Catholic Primary School, we use the Kapow Primary Art and Design scheme. The website can be found here: Kapow Primary: Art and Design
A Spiral Curriculum
Kapow Primary's Art and Design scheme has been carefully designed as a spiral curriculum, this means that pupils will return to the same skills again and again during their time in primary school. This allow the pupils to develop their skills at a deeper level each time, building upon prior knowledge.
