LOOK AT ALL THE WONDERFUL ART WE CREATE AT SCHOOL!
Art and Design at Bickershaw Church of England Primary School
Our overarching aim of Art and Design at Bickershaw Church of England Primary School is to develop and extend pupils visual creativity, curiosity, enquiry and aesthetic sensitivity to the natural and man-made world through a series of well-planned learning experiences.
Our Art and Design curriculum will be underpinned by the drivers of heritage, initiative and possibilities.
All children will develop and extend their visual creativity, curiosity, enquiry and aesthetic sensitivity to the natural and man-made world through a series of well-planned learning experiences.
Our principal aim is to develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding in art and design. We ensure that the act of investigating and making something includes exploring and developing ideas, and evaluating and developing work. Pupils will develop their creative ideas in both expressive and craft design contexts and their work will be informed by visual investigation from direct observation and other reference materials. Pupils will develop skills in manipulating a range of art and design media using a diversity of scale. Opportunities will be provided for them to respond to themes and starting points, which will be, planned to develop skills in systematically applying the visual elements of art.
By addressing Art and Design skills as the core of our curriculum, we will ensure that in any key stage children participate in the following principles of Art and Design:
