Welcome to the Arts' Page!
ART - Art and Design provides the children with the opportunities to develop and extend skills and an opportunity to express their individual interests, thought and ideas. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
DT - The children are taught to combine their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding in order to design and make a product. Skills are taught progressively to ensure that all children are able to learn and practice in order to develop as they move through the school. Evaluation is an integral part of the design process and allows children to adapt and improve their product; this is a key skill which they need throughout their life. D&T allows children to apply the knowledge and skills learned in other subjects, particularly Maths, Science and Art.
Music - Children do not just experience the arts; they are active participants and create their own arts of work. We hope to foster a lifelong love of music by exposing them to diverse musical experiences and igniting a passion for music. By listening and responding to different musical styles, finding their voices as singers and performers and as composers, all will enable them to become confident, reflective musicians. Our intent is to build a music curriculum that is progressive and builds on previous learning and to develop a love of music and singing across a broad curriculum, encouraging children to showcase their skills.
