Creative Arts

Art and Design

In art, pupils will learn about some of the most famous pieces of art that have been created and the artists that created them. They will also learn how to produce their own pieces of art in a range of different forms.  We place great emphasis on teaching pupils to draw with a structured drawing programme in KS2 that builds up children’s skills over time. We ensure pupils have lots of chance to practice the basics so that they are able to use their knowledge to create their own pieces of art at the end of a unit of study.


Our children in Year 3 take part in a programme of intensive music tuition provided by specialist music teachers to help them learn the violin. Children who work hard to improve their instrumental skills are able to carry on this specialist teaching in a small group in Year 4.

We currently use the well respected Charanga scheme of learning for our music teaching in our other year groups.  This is a well structured programme of learning that builds pupils knowledge, skills and understanding in music giving them time to study important pieces of music and also to learn how to create music.
