Art and design

Through Art and design at Brookland Infant and Nursery School, we aim to provide a curriculum for art that will enable our children to develop a sense of creativity, self-expression, confidence and resilience from Early Years through to Key Stage 1. It allows for cumulative progression of art knowledge and skills, allowing children to build on prior learning. It allows children to experiment in a ‘safe’ environment where there is no ‘right way’ of achieving but equally promotes high expectations. Our curriculum exposes all children to art, giving them a chance to participate and experience a range of creative activities.


In line with the National Curriculum, we aim to engage, inspire and challenge our children, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Through encouraging art discussions and evaluating their own and others’ work, children are encouraged to develop their visual language, ideas and feelings. Being able to experience a variety of materials, tools and techniques, enables children have the opportunity to record creatively the world around them.
