Awesome Art – Cross-curricular themes to plan for depth


Awesome Art is our brand new creation that uses artworks as the inspiration for exciting and inspiring cross-curricular themes.

It contains hundreds of carefully designed activities to develop pupil depth of learning using our unique B.A.D. cognitive domain progression framework.

As well as giving inspiring activities in Milestone 1 (Year’s 1 and 2), Milestone 2 (Year’s 3 and 4) and Milestone 3 (Year’s 5 and 6) of the Essentials Curriculum, it is also your very own art expert: child friendly background notes give you a detailed insight into the context of the artworks and the lives of the artists; a wide range of styles, cultures and time periods are covered, giving you a capsule ‘history of art’.

The Learning Maps also provide templates for pupils to explore the artworks in depth. They provoke thought and allow pupils to think far beyond what is taught.
