Art and Design is an essential part of the primary curriculum. At Woodborough Woods, children explore and develop their skills and creativity using a wide range of media. We value the use of sketch books and encourage the importance of experimentation, exploration and pushing ideas in imaginative ways. Art allows the child to develop their imagination and creativity, to make connections through their inventive minds and gives children the skills to record their imagination and ideas. While it is essentially a practical subject, art should provide opportunities for reflection and pupils should acquire the ability to make informed, critical responses of their own work and that of others. At Woodborough Woods, we aim to provide an art curriculum whereby children can grow to discover and develop their own individual talents.
