Leading learning in and through art and design
Time & Location
About The Event
This session will develop understanding, insight as well as build confidence in the learning opportunities that the subject of art and design should provide for primary pupils. It will be aimed at teachers, TAs and others who want to develop the curriculum and learning in their classes, across the school or community of schools. Using a mixture of dialogic teaching and hands on experience, participants will engage with the latest research findings and Ofsted expectations. As they reflect on their own levels of development, participants will be supported in considering how to ensure pupils’ learning is innovative, purposeful and engaging. Those who lead the subject will be able to ensure their school uses fresh approaches – rather than simply maintaining an older scheme of work year-on-year.
Sources of support and material resources will be referred to throughout the day and every participant will receive a copy of the book, Art and design primary coordinator's handbook, which was co-authored by the session leader.
Dr Peter Gregory has inspired primary pupils and their teachers for many years. He chaired the DfE Expert Subject Advisory Group to advise schools on the implementation of the current National Curriculum (although will quickly add he wasn’t responsible for the wording the DfE decided to adopt!) He is also currently President of the National Society for Education in Art and Design.
