Burnham-on-Sea Infant School
Art Curriculum Overview
Curriculum Lead: Shirley Marriott
Our curriculum approach to art reflects our ethos statement ‘Working Together Building Futures’ providing all our children rich opportunities to develop knowledge and skills of creative arts.
Intent (curriculum design, coverage and appropriateness) :
We believe a good Art Curriculum encourages children to explore their creativity, broadens their imagination and develops unique self-expression. Through exposure to art, children can become more confident and develop a sense of well-being. They can safely explore different possibilities and think beyond what they know, interpreting their place within their culture and the world around them. By exploring and engaging with art in the wider world children will have the freedom to pursue careers from animation to industrial design.
Implementation (curriculum delivery, teaching and assessment):
At Burnham Infants, children have many opportunities to take part in a range of artistic activities. They learn different techniques and skills through exploring the disciplines of drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and collage. Famous artists, architects and designers and their work are explored through discussion and the children have their own sketchbooks in which to practice techniques. Art activities and planning is supported by Access Art Materials and Unit Plans.
Impact (attainment and progress):
From EYFS to Year 2, children will build on previous skills and their ability to use line, tone, colour and form will be monitored. They will learn about the influences and styles of a range of artists from different eras: what influenced them, how they lived and what impact they had. Children will also get the opportunity to join in local competitions and think about how art is used in so many walks of life; including theatres, book illustrations and interior design.
