At Whiteheath infant school we believe in the follow statements.


  • Art engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and invent.
  • Art is an important part of developing pupils’ ability to express their individual creativity, working both individually and collaboratively with others.
  • Art takes pupils to other worlds, cultures and times, as they explore ideas in the work of a variety of artists.
  • Through art, pupils produce their own, original creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.
  • Learning through art develops pupils’ language skills, social skills, decision-making and



Within our curriculum there is a clear progression of skills taught to our children. We ensure that we tailor the art skills needed to support the children within the topics. In our curriculum the children get an opportunity to develop these skills through cross curricula links.




In the Blast off topic we explored space and created our own moon pictures by mixing flour and paint.

Year One

In The Arctic topic the children learnt about dark and light colour mixing with chalks. The children then created their own northern lights picture.

Year 2

In Zero to Hero the children learnt about the Artist Christy Brown. They then all had an opportunity to paint in the style of Christy by painting with their left foot.


‘Take one Picture’ unites all the children at Whiteheath infant school. Every year they take part and enjoy expressing their creativity.
