At East Morton CE Primary, we believe that high-quality Art lessons should inspire and broaden the horizons of our learners and allow
them to achieve their full creative potential. Our learners will be encouraged to develop both creatively and spiritually, supporting
their positive mental health and wellbeing. Our Art curriculum, which is closely aligned to the National Curriculum, provides learners
with the opportunity to access a carefully sequenced learning journey which weaves together the necessary knowledge, skills and
understanding through our broad and balanced curriculum. Learners will develop the skills of drawing, painting, printing, sculpture,
creating art with nature and digital art, and are given the opportunity to explore and evaluate different creative ideas. Learners will
be introduced to a range of famous artists throughout their topics and will be given the opportunity to evaluate their work and then
at the end point of the unit, create pieces in their own style which are influenced by the artist. We nurture learner’s spirituality and
individuality, allowing all children to express themselves freely. The skills they acquire will also be applied to their cross-curricular
topics, allowing learners to use their art skills to create a piece linked to a History or Geography topic throughout the year.
All learners at East Morton CE Primary take part in all aspects of our curriculum; our Art and Design curriculum aims to make a
difference in each learner’s life by providing opportunities that they may not have outside of school. Where required, lessons and
resources are adapted to ensure that all learners are included and can access the whole Art curriculum.
