As Art Subject Lead I created this glossary of art terminology/ extended vocabulary list to ensure that the children in my school had a broad range of vocabulary that could be used across the curriculum. I began with Year 1 and, based on National Curriculum progression documents, I compiled a list of vocabulary that the children should see, hear and be encouraged to use. I have added new vocabulary to deepen the children’s understanding and broaden their vocabulary for each year group. This can be seen in green.

This list can be used by:

  • Subject Leaders as part of progression documents and curriculum for the school.
  • Teachers as a planning scaffold and an assessment tool to ensure children have a broad art curriculum.
  • Teachers to deepen their subject knowledge.
  • Teachers and subject leaders to promote high standards in vocabulary across the curriculum.
  • To ensure Art is linked to English and reading where possible.
  • Pupils may find this resource useful as a check list in their sketchbooks at the beginning of each topic.

My school have used this grid this year and we have noticed a great improvement in the children’s understanding of art vocabulary in their speech and through their writing in English.
