Sir Thomas Abney Primary School

Art Design and Technology

All pupils at Sir Thomas Abney have the opportunity to express themselves artistically and develop their understanding and skills working with and drawing inspiration from different mediums and sources. The Art & Design curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge all pupils. We explore a range of artists throughout each year group linked to their topic. Children are inspired to experiment through a range of resources, and encouraged to develop their ideas through a hands-on approach; practising, improving and developing their skills.

In Design and Technology, children will develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world. They will build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users. Children are given opportunities to critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others.
