Art and DT

Our art and DT curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. We focus on progression of knowledge and skills as well as discreet vocabulary progression for each unit of work.

At Comberbach Nursery and Primary School, we believe that art and design technology embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity. Through a rich and varied art & DT curriculum, we strive to teach the children how to express their thoughts and values. Our aim is to equip our children with the vision, voice and skills to be able to create works of art to express themselves and their views. 

Children will learn about the materials and techniques they use, and about the world of art, craft and design, recognising the achievements of artists, designers and craftspeople from many different times and cultures.

Our curriculum helps our children progress in the knowledge and skills needed to ensure their creativity and independence. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. Part of our curriculum will enable children to learn how art and design both reflect and shape our history and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
