Statement of Intent
It is our belief that all children should have access to the Arts in order to foster a lifelong love and appreciation of this subject. We strive to present children with a diverse range of experiences, so that they can experience the Arts from different cultures and periods of historical significance. At Finchale our children experience the Arts through the Music and Art National Curriculum subjects supported by participation in a range of events, visits and performances provided by the school. We encourage pupils to explore the Arts beyond school and celebrate the skills they develop beyond the classroom as well as those developed within school, for example in our ‘Finchale’s Got Talent’ event. We believe this encourages children to appreciate and try a wider range of activities.
Art Statement of Intent
The aim of our Art curriculum is to ensure that children’s own experiences will result in them being able to use the visual elements of Art confidently, in their own work. We also expect children to be able to look at an image or a piece of art and to have an understanding of it, not just react to it. We equip them with the skills required to have an understanding of the language of art and design. This enables them to describe what they see in detail and to provide evidence for their observations.
We have developed a progressive Art curriculum across KS1 and KS2 which will enable the children to build on their skills year on year and to have the opportunity to learn about many art forms and artists.
