Curriculum - Art & Design

Art and Design at Birchwood Junior School is about the children having the opportunity to be creative, using their imaginations as well as learning new skills and techniques through the DREAM BIG initiative.

Within the Key stage 2 curriculum the children will learn to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. They will be able to take inspiration from studying great artists, craft makers and designers. They will have an understanding of how art and design has and is reflecting and shaping our history. As well as being exposed to art from other cultures.

Within Birchwood Junior School we value and encourage visits form local artists. Giving the children the opportunity to work alongside, question and learn new techniques with different mediums.

Below you can view a selection of the art studied and created by the children.
