Explore the work of artists, craftspeople and designers from different times and cultures for differences and similarities

Review what they and others have done and say what they think and feel about it.  Identify what they might change in their current work or develop in future work



Experiment with a variety of media; pencils, rubbers, crayons, pastels, felt tips, charcoal, chalk 

Control the types of marks made with the range of media

Name, match and draw lines/marks from observations. 

Draw on different surfaces with a range of media. Use differently textured and sized media. Shape Observe and draw shapes from observations. Draw shapes in between objects. Invent new shapes. Tone Investigate tone by drawing light/dark lines, light/dark patterns, light dark shapes etc.

Investigate textures by describing, naming, rubbing, copying.


Use a variety of tools and techniques including different brush sizes and types

Mix and match colours to artefacts and objects

Work on different scales

Experiment with tools and techniques e.g. layering, mixing media, scraping through

Name different types of paint and their properties

Identify primary colours by name Mix primary shades and tones

Create textured paint by adding sand, plaster


Print with a range of hard and soft materials e.g. corks, pen barrels, sponge

Make simple marks on rollers and printing palettes

Take simple prints i.e. mono printing

Roll printing ink over found objects to create patterns e.g. plastic mesh, stencils

Build repeating patterns and recognise pattern in the environment

Create simple printing blocks with press print

Design more repetitive patterns

Experiment with overprinting motifs and colour

Make rubbings to collect textures and patterns.


Match and sort fabrics and threads for colour, texture, length, size and shape

Understand the safety and basic care of materials and tools

Experiment with constructing and joining recycled, natural and manmade materials

Use simple 2D shapes to create a 3D form

Change the surface of a malleable material e.g. build a textured tile


Create images from a variety of media e.g. photocopies material, fabric, crepe paper , magazines etc Arrange and glue materials to different backgrounds Sort and group materials for different purposes e.g. colour texture

Fold, crumple, tear and overlap papers

Work on different scales

Collect, sort, name match colours appropriate for an image

Create and arrange shapes appropriately

Create, select and use textured paper for an image

Digital Media

Explore ideas using digital sources i.e. internet, CDROMs Record visual information using digital cameras, video recorders

Use a simple graphics package to create images and effects with Lines by changing the size of brushes in response to ideas

Use eraser, shape and fill tools

Use simple filters to manipulate and create images

Use basic selection and cropping tools
