Elm Class have really enjoyed collecting data. We visited our school car park to see the different colours of cars


Maple Class finished their learning about Picasso-style art by producing some fantastic distorted portraits.

‘A Day with a Difference’ was an absolutely wonderful way to begin Term 6, in Elm Class! We worked really hard on developing our skills in sports and really enjoyed the teamwork element, showing what great sports men and women we are.


At Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford, the intent of our Art curriculum is to deliver learning which is accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement. This should enable them to know more about art and artists, remember more about art and the artists they learn about, and understand how to use and apply this knowledge to impact upon their own art work more.

We want our students to be “skills rich” in art and craft techniques to enable them to explore and develop their own creativity. We want the children to be able to use these skills to interpret their own imagination, their world around them and to express themselves as individuals. The school has identified key intentions that drive our Art curriculum. 

Curriculum Intent, Implementation & Impact


To build an Art curriculum which develops learning and results in pupils knowing more, remembering more and understanding how the knowledge and skills can be applied in their own art work.
To design a curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding in exploring and investigating, creating and evaluating artwork as set out in the National Curriculum so that children can reach and exceed their potential at Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford and beyond. 

To build an Art curriculum that incorporates the understanding of Enterprise and gives pupils a clear purpose for their artwork.
To design, and resource, a self-sufficient art curriculum which enables pupils to create art work with a real purpose in terms of displaying and sharing the work they create, investing any funds raised through the Enterprise events within the art curriculum to enhance the resources available for pupils to use in the future.
