Our Aims & Objectives
Teaching & Learning
At Leatherhead Trinity we use variety of teaching and learning styles in Art lessons. These are linked very closely with our topic allowing for cross-curricular links to be made. Our principal aim is to develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding in Art. We ensure that the act of investigating and making something includes exploring and developing ideas, and evaluation and developing work. We do this best through a mixture of whole-class teaching and individual/group activities. Teachers draw attention to good examples as models for other children. They encourage children to evaluate their own ideas and methods, as well as the work of others, sharing what they think and feel about them. Within lessons, we give children the opportunity to work on their own and collaborate with others on projects in two and three dimensions and on different scales. Children also have the opportunity to use a wide range of materials and resources, including ICT.
