Art and Design
Expressing oneself through Art is an important part of a child’s development and here at Norwood we are keen to ensure that each child’s talents are fostered in a variety of mediums linked to the current topic as well as studying well known artists. This is 'Future Man' by Paul Klee. It is special to Norwood and we have the painting around our school. We like him as he is brave and looks strong and colourful.
In Key stage 1: Children use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination.as well as a range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space.
In Key stage 2: Children are encouraged to improve their mastery of the art and design techniques already learned. All children have a sketch book which follows them through the different year groups and key stages enabling them to study their progress and mastery of techniques while at the same time ensuring there is a balance.
Norwood celebrates art work in its own Art Gallery and also organises special trips to local art galleries to study works of art and be involved in workshops which build on their skills.
