At Cambois Primary School we believe that a high quality Art education should engage, inspire and creatively challenge children , equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment , invent and create their own works of Art whilst also developing the skills to think critically. Children at Cambois Primary School will be provided with the opportunities to express themselves imaginatively and creatively. The children of Cambois will experience a variety of techniques and skills to develop their ability in 'art making' as well as learning how art has shaped history and contributed to different cultures. Art is taught as a separate subject focusing on a new skill or craft, art is also used to support or initiate learning in other areas of the curriculum.
We have a two year planning cycle based on the National Curriculum 2014. We follow an interleaving curriculum. The breadth maps with a list of suggested artists for each year group can be found below with our two curriculum drivers of 'possibilities' and 'initiative' underpinning them all.
