  • about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and desgners, describing the differences and similarities between different practices and disciplines, and making links to their own work.

Key Stage 2
Pupils should be taught to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.
