St Joseph’s uses the Bishop Chadwick Catholic Education Trust Art Transition Unit from Years 1-6. These carefully planned units ensure that our pupils are ready to access the KS3 Art curriculum once they enter secondary school. The study of Art can embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. Teaching and learning of Art should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own pieces of work through drawing, painting and sculpture. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art both reflects and shapes our history and contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
Although our Art curriculum is planned from Year 1, it begins in EYFS where children safely use and explore a variety of tools, materials and techniques. They will be given lots of opportunities to experiment with colour and design , texture, form and function.
