Art and Design

Art and Design at Balksbury Federation plays an integral part of the curriculum. The Federation strongly believes it is an important tool for developing a range of key transferable skills for life such as creativity, innovation, resilience and communication. Our Art and Design curriculum aims to develop these skills in all children by the time they leave us in Year 6. As well as these skills for life, Art and Design is fantastic for developing children’s fine and gross motor skills and provides alternative ways for children to communicate ideas.


See below the overview of what the children will be learning for each unit and the progression of skills which shows how the the learning progresses from Year R to Year 6.
