At Framwellgate Moor Primary School our ambition is for every child to experience a rich and varied art and design framework while learning fundamental art techniques alongside building artistic knowledge. We enable every child to experience art and design and make progress incrementally.

Early Years

At FMPS we believe that Expressive Arts and Design in our Early Years provision is integral to pupils being creative and developing their own ideas.  Art and Design is delivered through adult led learning and continuous provision. Adult led sessions focus on developing skills, new learning and exploring concepts. For example, children in Reception have made paint brushes using natural materials and then created paint with mud during Forest school. Continuous provision allows children to practise their skills, challenge their thinking and embed concepts. Art and Design objectives are taught, explored and revisited throughout the year.

In Key Stage 1

Pupils use a range of materials creatively to design and make products. They use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination.  They have opportunities to develop a wide range of art and design techniques using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space. They explore the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.  For example, in their drawing lessons for Year 1 and 2, they looked at the works of the illustrator Quentin Blake. They learnt how to make different marks to show textures, after which they applied the techniques into their own drawing.

In Key Stage 2

Pupils develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.  They create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas. They improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay.  Pupils learn about great artists, architects and designers in history.  In Year 3 and 4 for example, pupils use tints and shades to create 3- dimensional effect. Firstly, they learn about tints and shades, then they explore making and creating a colour chart. Next, they learn different techniques like stippling, dabbing and pointillism, after which they apply this knowledge into their artwork.  In Year 5 and 6 children continue to look at artists’ eg David Hockney, Paula Rego and Frank Bowling. Next, they chose an artist and research their techniques used. They use their sketchbooks to record their exploration and research and then plan an extended piece of art to apply what they have learnt.

Pupils in Lower Key Stage 1 and EYFS are able to join a Reading Arts and Crafts club where they have an opportunity to extend their love of art.

By the end of their Art and design journey at FMPS, we want to ensure that children have acquired the relevant skills, knowledge and confidence to allow them to be successful in the next stage of their art and design learning and beyond.
