We are ARTISTS and DESIGNERS at St Margaret Ward.

At St Margaret Ward we teach art and design to develop creativity, imagination and encourage pupils to express themselves through drawing, painting, sculpture and collage.

We encourage children to look closely at the world around them and to see detail through visual, tactile and sensory experiences. It enables children to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different media and processes.

Art requires concentration, perseverance, decision making and often collaboration providing challenge for learners at all levels.

Our Art & Design Policy (click on the link) gives more detail about how art & design is taught at St Margaret Ward.

In addition, below is the long-term plan of art & design topics taught in the different year groups from Early Years to Year 6.

The Progression Map below outlines how the knowledge, skills and understanding develop in art from Early Years to Year 6.
