Dogsthorpe Academy

Year 6

Each year group features a topic focussing on the explicit development of art, craft and design skills and on the formal elements of art: colour, form, line, shape, texture, tone and pattern. These skills are applied and developed further in the remaining topics, each comprising five lessons. Units can be taught in any order, as progression builds upon learning from the previous year.
