  • to use a range of materials creatively to design and make
  • to use drawing, painting and sculpture to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination

In Key stage 2

  • to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.
  • to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay]
