The study of Art and Design at Hob Hill Primary School has been developed with our school motto of ‘Flourish and Achieve as Unique Creations of God’ as its guiding principle with the aim to stimulate creativity and imagination amongst our children, providing them with visual, tactile and sensory experiences, to enhance their understanding of the world around them. Learning through creativity builds children’s life skills – helping them to become more inquisitive, resilient, imaginative, reflective, resourceful and collaborative, embodying our school’s learning behaviours. As the children progress, they will gain a deeper understanding of how Art and Design has shaped history, and how it has contributed to the culture, creativity and wealth of an ever-changing world.
