Art and Design
Art lessons at Winslow church of England School enable and inspire children to develop creative and critical thinking and making skills as well as inspiring confidence, value and pleasure in art.
Using the Access Art Primary Curriculum Pathways, we help develop children’s understanding of colour, form, texture, pattern and their ability to use materials and processes to communicate ideas, feelings and meanings. All children are encouraged to explore, question and make. Children will develop creative risk-taking and a willingness to experiment – a Growth Mindset. This will help children explore the world at first hand, using all their senses and experimentation, and so gain knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live.
Throughout all pathways children are taught to express their own ideas, feelings, thoughts and experiences. We aim to enhance children’s ability to value the contribution made by artists, craftworkers and designers and respond critically and imaginatively to ideas, images and objects.
