Art Curriculum Statement

We aim to engage, inspire and challenge children to experiment and create their own works of art, craft and design. The children will think critically know how art reflects and shapes our history. They will produce creative work and become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques. They will evaluate and analyse creative works using appropriate language and will learn about artists and designers.

Art Progression Map

Year One

We went to Croxteth Park Farm and sketched the farmyard animals.


Year One

We went to the Walker Art Gallery and explored the art work. In the gallery, we sketched an abstract piece – Broken Bride by John Hoyland. We saw lots of sculptures in the sculpture gallery and sculpted a small piece of art based on an animal. We had a fantastic time learning about art. 


Year Four

We are learning about the sculpture artist Anthony Gormley. We created the artist study and wrote down facts about him.


Year Four
Based on the work of Anthony Gormley, who created iron figures at Crosby beach known as ‘Another Place’, we sculpted our own figures using clay. 
Year Six
We learned about the artist Leonardo Da Vinci, who sketched and painted lots of artwork. Some of his famous works include the Mona Lisa, Vitruvian Man and the Last Supper. We designed our artist study page in our sketchbooks.


Year 1

We had fun sketching a self-portrait.

We made digital art using the app ‘Doodle Buddy’ we used the app to draw a self-portrait.

We also started our art topic – printing. We created prints of our hands and will assemble a display flower garden.
