At Ringwood Junior School we seek to provide valuable and enjoyable creative experiences, where seeing, feeling, thinking and making are combined and children are free to express themselves. This is achieved through a balanced approach in which we cover a range of different mediums and skills and provide a rich variety of artwork and appreciation of different artists, designers and architects.
Success in art can be expressed in many different areas of the curriculum and it is taught through different topics, allowing it to be meaningful and purposeful to the child. We offer all pupils’ equal access to the art curriculum and provide them with the support and guidance that is needed to foster a love for creativity.
Units of Work
We explore a range of different mediums throughout each unit. This includes drawing, painting, collage, printing, sculpture and ICT, allowing the children to explore new or existing skills regularly.
Our units link to our current history or geography projects, allowing for a deeper and more purposeful experience.
