At Wyndham, children are encouraged to develop their creative skills through the exploration of a variety of techniques. Each year group has the opportunity to delve in to the life and works of key artists and genres throughout history in order to build up their understanding of how art has contributed to changing cultures over time.
We believe that every child is an artist so we enable them to showcase their curiosity and exploration of techniques through their sketchbooks, from year 1 to year 6. This enables the children to build on prior learning and see their own progression of skills learned. We encourage expression of themselves using the different skills and techniques as they progress through each year group. This then helps children to consistently evaluate and analyse their own and others work.
Our Foundation Stage forms the basis for building a strong starting point for our children to develop the physical skills needed to mark make and express themselves early on in their creative journeys.
