Knowledge and Skills Organisers

For each unit of work, teachers create a 'knowledge and skills organiser' to plan the key knowledge, vocabulary and skills children will learn during the unit.

Teachers supplement this with a variety of resources and experiences to secure long-term understanding of the knowledge and concepts taught.

Some examples are shown below:


Year 2 - Painting Knowledge and Skills Organiser

Year 4 - Drawing Knowledge and Skills Organiser

Access Art - Sharing Visual Arts Inspiration

Lots of our Art and Design curriculum has been inspired by Access Art. This is a UK based charity who provide schools with creative and inspiring ideas for learning key skills in art. The school subscribes to this service in order to provide our staff with high quality ideas, resources and professional support.

There are a number of free images, videos and step by step ideas that can be used at home. You can access some of these resources by clicking the link below:
