Intent, Implementation and Impact

Subject Key Objective Progression & Development by Year Groups

The following is a guide to help you understand your child’s progression through school.

All lessons are differentiated. This means teachers plan activities that enable the objective to be learned by all children including those who will find the objective challenging, those children who with hard work will secure good progress and those children who can tackle extra stretch and challenge in this subject.

What knowledge will the children have embedded?

Children will be able to recall and demonstrate the skills required to produce their portrait. They will be able to explain the correct way to hold a paintbrush, how to select appropriate colours and apply paint to achieve a desired effect. They will recall examples of portraiture and know the techniques used in these examples.

What retention may be demonstrated?

Here are some example questions that may be used to assess children’s understanding.

EYFS: Can you tell me about your painting? What does it show?

KS1: How do you hold a paintbrush when painting? What does highlight mean?

KS2: How do you show depth in a painting? How would you demonstrate depth in a painting?
