At Hullavington we recognise the importance of nurturing creativity within our pupils. The arts stimulate imagination, creativity, thinking and an understanding of diverse art forms both within and beyond the children’s learning environment. We aim to foster a life-long interest in the arts. We provide our pupils with opportunities to develop and express ideas through the making and presenting of artworks. We aim to help our pupils become critically aware and to respond to their own, and to other’s work.

Pupils have the opportunity to work on a variety of techniques such as drawing and painting, collage, textile, 3D design, printmaking and digital media. Pupils will also look at the work of a variety of artists of different movements and media. Art weeks have proved to be a thoroughly valuable experience for all of our pupils, teachers and parents, and have demonstrated our commitment to the Arts within the local community. We invite artists to come in to work alongside the pupils. 

The art and design curriculum stimulates creativity and imagination.  Pupils use colour, form, texture, pattern and different materials to communicate what they see, feel and think.

Curriculum plan

Design Technology


  • Clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum. The Design Technology National Curriculum and EYFS is planned for and covered in full within the EYFS, KS1 and KS2 school curriculum. Whilst the EYFS and National Curriculum forms the foundation of our curriculum, we make sure that children learn additional skills, knowledge and understanding and enhance our curriculum as and when necessary.
  • Delivery of design and technology projects with a clear structure. Each year group will undertake a construction topic, a textile topic and a food/drink topic.
  • Delivery showing clear following of the design process where each project fill follow: research, design, make and evaluate.
  • Each year group has a garden plot and takes ownership and responsibility for cultivating the relevant crops.
  • A range of skills will be taught ensuring that children are aware of health and safety issues related to the tasks undertaken
  • Clear and appropriate cross curricular links to underpin learning in multi areas across the curriculum giving the children opportunities to learn life skills and apply skills to ‘hands on’ situations in a purposeful context.
  • Cross curricular project booklets. Children will undertake design tasks and use skills from across the curriculum to fully explore the design process evaluating work ensuring that it is of the highest possible quality. These project books will be thoroughly marked and assessed against the curriculum objective. Children are also asked to self-evaluate their work.
  • Design Technology focused displays in every classroom alongside celebrating the outstanding three dimensional creations on display throughout the school. These displays celebrate exceptional practice and exemplify terminology and vocabulary used.
  • Independent learning: In design technology children may well be asked to solve problems and develop their learning independently. This allows the children to have ownership over their curriculum and lead their own learning in Design Technology.
  • Collaborative learning: In design and technology children may well be asked to work as part of a team learning to support and help one another towards a challenging, yet rewarding goal.
