Hormead C of E
First and Nursery School

"Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of God"



Each year, the children in Hormead will study the works of famous artists in the areas of Drawing, Colour, Sculpture, Textiles, Printing and Collage. They will use sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas and learn to think critically about their art and design work. At the beginning of each unit of work, pupils will study an artist, their work, style, skills and lives, before using those techniques to explore work more widely. 


We implement this through:

  • exposing children to a progressive range of art specific vocabulary
  • exposing children to a diverse range of artists
  • engaging children in a range of skill based activities with a variety of materials and media
  • giving children the opportunities to experience art outside the classroom.


For our pupils to:

  • have raised cultural capital
  • be able to understand and use art specific vocabulary
  • be able to master a range of artistic skills
  • foster a love of the creative process
  • be inspired to love learning

Progression and Sequencing

Art is taught through a thematic approach across the whole school. Each year we build upon six key artistic skills.
