Primary Art

Our Approach

At Castle Newnham our Art curriculum encourages children to deepen and extend their feelings of curiosity, excitement, joy and explore their inquisitive nature.

Art enables children to communicate and respond to their everyday experiences and feelings while promoting a sense of pride and achievement.

Children develop their imagination and visual perception using first hand experience and rich stimulating resources as a starting point to their enquiries.

Children have opportunities to work with artists and explore gallery collections to develop their understanding and appreciation of art in a variety of genres and styles, which reflect our rich and diverse multicultural history and contemporary society.

We are extremely fortunate to have access to a dedicated art room in UKS2 and use this for learning with our Year 5 and 6 cohorts. Art is one of the areas of our curriculum which is taught weekly by a secondary specialist teacher in UKS2 to help prepare our pupils for KS3 and beyond.
