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 through the creative process. We ensure that the act of investigating and making something includes exploring and developing ideas, critical thinking and evaluation of their own and others work. The emphasis is on the learning journey rather than the end product. 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 investigate the work of famous artists, develop skills, 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.
