Design Technology and Art skills are also linked to our termly topics. Through our Design Technology curriculum children produce designs then make simple models, structures or 2D representations of their ideas. We always encourage children to use their plans to direct their work and evaluation is seen as a key part of the learning process. Art is explored creatively and gives children a chance for self-expression and careful disciplined observation. We focus carefully on developing children’s skills in mark making and the importance of producing work to proudly share and display with others. Children in Key Stage 2 will create their own portfolio which they will build year on year, taking their sketch book with them to their next year group.
