Here at Hungerford Academy we pride ourselves in providing every pupil with the opportunities to experience and embrace art in school and value every child as an artist. We endeavour to provide our children with the basic skills and techniques which will enable them to expand and express themselves in order to create pieces of work as unique and individual as they are. We also aim to continuously relate our art work with links to life in the ‘real world’ to ensure that our children are equipped with the knowledge and understanding on how they could use their artist techniques professionally or personally throughout the future.
At Hungerford Academy we believe that art gives us unlimited opportunities to further stimulate creativity and imagination in children. Through the disciplines of drawing, design and making; our children will acquire important communication and making skills that significantly contribute to their learning in other areas of the primary school curriculum.
Aims and Scope:
- To introduce children to a wide range of tools and techniques to enable them to record from observation, experience and imagination.
- To provide children with a variety of starting points for their own work.
- To improve children’s awareness of visual and tactile elements of art and design, and to develop their understanding of: Line, Colour, Form, Texture, Printing and Pattern.
- To teach children about the differences and similarities of: Artists, Designers and Craftmakers from different cultures and time periods.
- The ability to reflect on, analyse and critically evaluate their own work and that of others.
We recognise the importance of providing effective learning opportunities for all pupils to achieve within The Arts. We aim to set suitable learning challenges, respond to pupil’s diverse learning needs and overcome potential barriers to learning for individuals and groups of pupils in accordance with Hungerford Primary Academy’s inclusion policy.

This Year once again our Y5 children have been given the opportunity to enter a multi –school Cheshire competition with the chance to have their work displayed in The Liverpool School of art and design exhibition gallery. The children have been able to explore their artistic techniques through using a range of mixed media. Some pieces display pure mixed media that has been based on ‘The Great Exhibition 1850’ whilst other pieces demonstrate use of ink through painting and adding texture using brayer.
