Art & Technology
At Lady Boswell’s we believe that creativity is an extremely important part of self-expression which needs to be nurtured. Given that children at Lady Boswell’s tell us that they enjoy and value their art lessons and creative experiences at school, we recognise that making a piece of artwork is an absorbing and rewarding experience which can engender feelings of well-being. Our aim is to ensure that every child enjoys a feeling of artistic success. Whilst ensuring encouragement and validation for all, talent and attainment in Art are recognised and held in high regard by pupils and teachers alike. We aim to deliver a high-quality art, craft and design education to engage, challenge and inspire pupils, equipping them to experiment, invent, create and evaluate their own works of art. As pupils progress they will be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design and know how art has shaped and reflected our history, contributing to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY
At Lady Boswell’s we believe that creativity and design is an extremely important part of self-expression which needs to be nurtured. DT should provide children with a real life context for learning. We want to allow children to aspire to excel through creating opportunities for them in the wider world. Through the DT curriculum, children should be inspired by engineers, designers, chefs and architects to enable them to create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with a real life purpose.
Please see your child's Class Page for the details of their year group current DT topic-based teaching.
