Art and Design
Burlington Junior School’s art curriculum offers children opportunities to understand and appreciate the visual arts as well as to stimulate their creativity and imagination.
Pupils use colour, form, texture and pattern, as well as different materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think. They are taught progressive skills in drawing, painting, sculpture and textiles.
Our Art and Design Learning Journey
The learning journey for art and design follows the National Curriculum for geography in Key Stage Two. It begins from the point reached at the end of Key Stage One and builds knowledge through each year group.
Enrichment in Art and Design
Each unit of Art and Design enables pupils to explore the work of an artistic hero. Pupils learn about the artist and make use of viewfinders to study small details of their artwork, sketching those that inspire them.
Pupils in Year 4 visit the Tate Modern Gallery as part of their learning about sculpture. They are able to see sculptures and observe the similarities and differences between them. They are also able to view sculpture by Alexander Calder - an artist who provides inspiration for their own wire sculptures.
