Jesus Christ, Son of Mary, Son of God, is the centre of

the Rosary Community where we live, love and learn together





At the Rosary School our Art curriculum has been designed to ensure all children are inspired to experiment and be inventive. By experiencing the highest forms of creativity, our curriculum aims to build the confidence of our pupils providing opportunities to develop their abilities, nurture their talents and interests and express their thoughts and ideas.

We  believe that art is a universal language that enables all pupils to engage, be inspired and challenged.  Our art curriculum will equip pupils with the 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.



Planning is sequential, allowing children to build their skills and knowledge. Key skills are revisited with increasing complexity, allowing children to revise and build on previous learning. Creativity and independent outcomes are embedded into planning, supporting students in learning how to make their own creative choices and decisions, so that their art outcomes, whilst still being knowledge-rich, are unique to the pupils.



We want children to be equipped with a range of techniques and have the confidence and creativity to form a strong foundation for their Art and design learning at Key Stage 3 and beyond.


The expected impact is that children will:


- Produce creative work, exploring and recording their ideas and experiences.

- Be proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.

- Evaluate and analyse creative works using subject-specific language.

- Know about great artists and the historical and cultural development of their art.

Kapow Art and Design


At the Rosary Catholic Primary School we use the Kapow Art and Design Scheme. The scheme of work is designed with strands that run throughout each unit:


  • Generating ideas
  • Using sketchbooks
  • Making skills including formal elements (line, shape, tone, texture, pattern, colour)
  • Knowledge of artists
  • Evaluating and analysing


Units of lessons are sequential, allowing pupils to build their skills and knowledge, applying them to a range of outcomes. Formal elements of art are woven throughout the units. Key skills are continually revisited with increasing complexity in a spiral curriculum model. This allows pupils to revise and build on previous learning. 


The 4 core areas of learning across the Art curriculum are:


  • Drawing
  • Painting and mixed media
  • Sculpture and 3D
  • Craft and design
