At Wood Fold Primary School, we aim to give all children a high-quality art education and inspire pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about art and craft. Art is an important part of our broad and balanced curriculum at Wood Fold with three units taught in each year group. The skills being taught in each year group are progressive, building on prior knowledge and skills. Our curriculum allows for children to carry out extensive research on key artists before practising and developing the skills to produce a final piece in the style of that artist. We want to engage, inspire and challenge our children: equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As our children progress through the year groups, they will be able to think more critically and be able to develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.
