Art and DT promotes creativity and imagination in pupils, skills which are valued and transferable to all other areas of the curriculum. The practical exploration within art builds confidence, develops new skills as well as enhances existing skills.
At Carlton, children learn a progression of Art and DT skills through the different year groups that are linked with their topics. We aim to give the children a variety of enriched experiences where they study a range of artists and styles from different cultures, experiment with different materials and techniques as well as bring their ideas into reality by constructing their pieces of art. They are taught to plan, design, complete and evaluate their work and the work of others.
Take a look at some of the master pieces around our school.
The whole school recently created a Food Court in our Main Hall. Each class designed and made their own pop up cafe with baked goods. Our children enjoy using our Kitchen classroom , Victoria!
