Art and Design Technology

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality Art and Design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art and design. 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 and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Art and Design Technology National Curriculum

Art and Design Technology at St. Bridget's

Art and Design Technology express the highest forms of human creativity. St Bridget’s engages, inspires and challenges pupils to experiment, invent and create their own works of Art and Design through a vibrant and imaginative curriculum. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a strong understanding of Art and Design. They should also understand how Art and DT both reflect and shape our history, contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our country.

At St Bridget’s, the teachers are free to choose when to deliver Art. For example, in blocks at the end of each half term, or throughout the week. We look at a variety of techniques including; collage, printing, drawing, sculpture, painting, textiles and explore and reflect on many different artists.

St Bridget’s takes parts in the Primary Arts Network exhibition which is displayed in Parr Hall – This year’s theme is ‘Same but Different’ where we will embrace the diversity of our world.

Curriculum Links

Art and Design Technology weaves through the curriculum in all areas. At St Bridget's Art and Design have strong links to Science, History, English, Geography and Maths.

For example, Year 4 learn all about ‘Electricity’ in Science whilst they investigate, design and make ‘Torches’ in Design Technology.
