Art and design in the curriculum at Wheeler
Art and design are an integral part of the curriculum at Wheeler. Whilst following the Long Term Plan, children will experience a broad range of activities that encourage the development of basic skills in art and design. The work of famous artists will be studied and children will be given opportunities to respond to the work of famous artists.
Art will be cross curricular and may often be created as a result of current topic work, visits, visitors, seasonal events, local events or any other stimulus. At all times there should be a balance of process and outcomes. Displays should celebrate children’s work and enhance the learning environment.
