Art at Downfield
Art at Downfield is taught through topics. Year on year, artistic skills progress and the knowledge of artists accumulates. Children learn to interpret art and use their artists to inspire their own work. Children then use this to develop their own artistic licences.
Children predominantly work in sketchbooks for drawing, practising skills, designing and evaluating their work.
Learning journeys on slides show the progression from the previous years and how this feeds in to what they are covering in their current year.
