Art and Design
Art and Design at Merton Bank
At Merton Bank Primary School we teach art through focused art skills lessons as well as lessons linked to class learning journeys and class books.
The National Curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Will produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.
- Will become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.
- Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design.
- Will know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
Assessing Art and Design at Merton Bank
Art feedback is mainly given verbally by teachers, teaching assistants and sometimes by peers. When appropriate, some pieces of artwork will have written feedback in the form of next steps.
Assessments are made half termly and are monitored by the subject leader.
Rainbow Art Project
At the beginning of the year each class focused their art curriculum around a project linked to rainbows. They combined different art techniques through a thorough planning process to create their final pieces which they displayed in school for all to see. It was amazing to see the range of projects that were produced across the school.
