Art, DT & Music Curriculum Intent
All pupils learn to sing and play classroom instruments. We teach children to notice pace, rhythm and pitch. They all have opportunities to listen to a wide variety of music from different times and cultures. Pupils also learn to improvise and develop their own musical compositions. We follow the Charanga Music School scheme of work.
Design and Technology
Across the school, children are given a wide range of opportunities to develop their skills in the design, making and evaluating process. In all year groups, children cook a range of foods with a focus on healthy and savoury products. Children across all year groups have the opportunity to join a healthy cooking club. From building tin can robots, to making motorised cars, the children are provided with many exciting learning prospects that inspire and motivate them in the subject area.
Through looking at, discussing, exploring and practising the techniques, children develop a visual perceptiveness and language with which they can explore the world around them and express their ideas and feelings. Art is experimental and explorative and is not just about the finished piece, but the whole creative process.
You will see some fantastic artwork on display and children in KS1 and KS2 have the opportunity to join arts and crafts club
