c   Experiment with and select methods and approaches, synthesise observations, ideas and feelings, and design and make images and artefacts.                           *

3   Evaluating and developing work
    Pupils should be taught to:
a   Analyse and evaluate their own and others’ work, express opinions and make reasoned judgements                                                                      *

4   Knowledge and understanding
    Pupils should be taught about:
a   The visual and tactile qualities of materials and processes and how these can be manipulated and matched to ideas, purposes and audiences                           *
b   Codes and conventions and how these are used to represent ideas, beliefs, and values in works of art, craft and design                                              *
c   Continuity and change in the purposes and audiences of artists, craftspeople and designers from Western Europe and the wider world (for example, differences        *
    in the roles and functions of art in contemporary life, historical periods in Western Europe, and in different cultures.
