Art and Design
Here at Fowlmere we use the Unity Schools Partnership Curriculum (CUSP) to support our Art and Design teaching and learning.

CUSP is underpinned by evidence, research and cognitive science. Modules are deliberately sequenced for robust progression and allows teachers to focus on the lesson.

There is an emphasis on oracy and vocabulary acquisition, retention and use to break down learning barriers and accelerate progress. A rich diet of language and vocabulary is deliberately planned for.

Specific skills are discreetly taught and practised so that they become transferrable. The sequenced modules activate prior learning, build on skills and deepen knowledge AND understanding. Learning, vocabulary and content is cumulative; content is learned, retrieved and built upon.

Children are taught Art weekly for three half terms of the school year.  They learn range of skills including drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles and modelling.
