Art is an essential contribution to the development of all children from the moment they enter school. Apart from its spiritual dimension and cultural base it also provides additional educational benefits which enhance other areas of the curriculum such as maths(proportion measurement) and science (colour, shade, texture). Children will experience the development of skills using a wide range of art materials to produce both 2D and 3D work.
Design and technology encourages children to become independent and creative problemsolvers both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas, to make a wide range of objects and models and to evaluate different designs. We actively encourage the children to be inventive in their designs, through the study of design technology the children combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues.
