Art and Design


At Moston Lane, we believe art and design embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity. As a school, we aim to engage, inspire and challenge our pupils, providing them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art and design.



The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Produce creative work
  • Know about great artists, craft makers and designers
  • Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design

Here you can find the 'Age Related Expectations' for each year group, which outlines what skills a child should be able to do at the end of each year. Children will be assessed against these expectations to see what they have achieved, and what they need to work on next.

Moston Lane’s Amazing Art Exhibition

Moston Lane held an art exhibition to display some of the amazing art work produced by Moston Lane pupils. Every class visited the exhibition in anticipation to see the fabulous artwork. 

After school, parents and carers were invited to come and enjoy the children’s creations. 

It was a successful afternoon and lots of fantastic comments were made about the children’s work such as ‘Outstanding’, 'Astonishing art’, ‘Great art work’ and ‘They look wonderful.’

We definitely have a lot of artists in our school!


Year 6 Sketching

As part of the Year 6 topic on Habitats and Adaptations, they visited the Manchester Museum to take part in various activities. One of these activities included sketching and shading different insects and animals that were on display in them museum. This task allowed the children to include the fine details of the animals shape, skin and markings.


Year 4 Clay

When learning about British Settlements, Year 4 children made their own Anglo-Saxon pottery. They looked at patterns and shapes and practised these skills in their sketch books. After this, the children designed their own Anglo-Saxon inspired pot. When their designs were complete, Year 4 got to use and develop different skills when using clay. We looked at rolling, squeezing, carving, scoring and smoothing.
