Art and Design/Design and Technology
The Old Ford Primary Academy art and design/ design and technology curriculum covers a range of artists, materials and techniques. Progression is shown by different year groups studying the same topic but at different levels, studying different artists and using a range of materials and techniques.
Outcomes are assessed by each teacher completing an assessment grid for each pupil which shows their progress through each year.
Lessons are taught in blocked weeks at the end of each half term. All English/ topic lessons are replaced with art/D&T lessons. Shared reading and writing also form part of each unit’s outcomes.
