About our key stage 1 art topics
Each year group features:
- A Formal elements of art topic focussing on the explicit development of: colour, form, line, shape, texture, tone and pattern.
- An Art and design skills topic focussing specifically on art, craft and design skills.
These skills are then applied and developed further in the other topics, either within that year group, or later year groups.
Topics can be taught in any order within the year group, although we do recommend starting with the Formal elements and Skills topics
