Art and DT


Art at Redland is taught as part of topic, which is planned on a 2-year cycle. This is reviewed annually to ensure accurate coverage and progression in the subject. There are key areas taught in each year group, with skills being built on as the children move through the school.

During Art in Redland Primary School the children use a range of media, line, textures and techniques to create wonderful masterpieces. 

Below are a selection of photos from the children’s art work over the year.

Redland ART Journey


Design Technology at Redland School is an important part of the curriculum that promotes children’s skills in designing and making. They have opportunities to explore artefacts and raise questions related to design and purpose. They will be taught to select appropriate materials and use equipment safely. They are encouraged to refine and redraft their ideas and become critical in their making to meet the needs of design specifications.

At Redland, we believe that for our children to progress in Design Technology, they need a careful balance of direct teaching, team work and independence.  They are given opportunities to experiment and explore in the creation of models and structures. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on other subject areas such as mathematics, science, engineering,
computing and art. 

Throughout their time at Redland, children will experience a range of Design Technology opportunities and work with a variety of materials.
