Art and Design

At Mayhill, our Art curriculum develops creativity, challenges, engages and inspires children whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Throughout teaching and learning at Mayhill, the use of sketch books is used to record the journeys taken through drawing and painting, sculpture and textiles.

The curriculum develops the children’s subject knowledge, skills and understanding whilst encouraging them to explore and investigate, create and evaluate their own and others’ artwork so that every pupil is enabled to reach and exceed their potential at Mayhill.  Our curriculum allows all pupils to create art work with a real purpose often threaded into other curriculum areas through e.g. Science, English and History links.
