Art and Design
At Charles Saer Community School, we embrace opportunities for children to build upon developing art skills and explore a range of media during their time with us.
Art and Design in the Early Years
In the Early Years, children are encouraged to experiment with different media and materials and to explore different ways of representing their experiences.
Using “Development Matters” to track progress, staff provide children with opportunities to develop their artistic skills, knowledge and understanding.
Art and Design in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2
We have developed a creative approach to our curriculum using “Maestro” units over a two-year cycle. Through this, art and design is delivered either as a focus for a unit or as cross-curricular linked activities, following the National Curriculum programmes of study. Art is studied over three half terms throughout the year.
The children are given the opportunity to focus on developing their skills in drawing, painting and working with clay during their time at Charles Saer. They study one additional media in each two year cycle.
