Art and Design
At Bedford Hall Methodist Primary School, we offer a high-quality art and design curriculum that engages, inspires and challenges pupils. The artists, architects (see DT overview - structures) and designers studied have been carefully selected to reflect our key curriculum drivers: Culture, Diversity and Possibilities as well as our Methodist heritage.
We use Chris Quigley's curriculum milestones to ensure progression through year groups. This allows pupils to build upon previous learning to deepen their knowledge and skills, thus enabling them to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Sketch books are used from Year 1 to Year 6 to evaluate the work of artists, architects and designers; record pupils' own observations and drawings and to review and revisit previous ideas.
