Art & Design


At Hereward Primary School, Art and Design engages and inspires all children through creative planning opportunities, practical experiences and critical reflection. Children are equipped with knowledge and skills needed to experiment and express their imagination and creativity. They explore pattern, shape, colour and texture using a range of mediums such as paint, sculpture, drawing, collage and printing. Through the study and appreciation of key artists from around the world, children learn about the development of particular art forms and their importance in society. They then take inspiration from these artists and create their own works in similar styles. Art and Design is delivered in a fun and inclusive way for all. Artwork is displayed and valued in the classroom and the whole school. Throughout their time at Hereward, children’s practical experiences and their knowledge of the history of Art builds, resulting in a progression of techniques as well as an aesthetic knowledge and understanding of the creative world.


The National Curriculum for Art & Design aims to ensure that all pupils:


  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences;
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques;
  • evaluate creative works and know about great artists and designers.
