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:
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:
Our Art Gallery

In Year 3 we have explored prehistoric art linked to our History topic. We have used charcoal to create images in the style of prehistoric art.
