Aims of our Design Technology curriculum
At St Finbar’s we believe that art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. Our art curriculum is designed so that pupils are engaged, inspired and challenged whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
As pupils progress within St Finbar’s, they are taught the skills needed to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. Children leave us with an understanding of how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
Children at St Finbar’s will develop their understanding of the visual language of art with effective teaching and considered sequences of lessons. They develop their understanding of the visual elements of art and design (line, tone, texture, colour, pattern, shape, 3D form) through a curriculum which will enable each child to reach their full potential.
