At Leigh Beck Infant and Nursery Academy our curriculum reflects our school motto: We take pride.
We want all of our children to be excited and motivated throughout their time at our school, and to develop the skills and knowledge to enable them to make the best possible progress in their learning.
We believe that high quality art engages, inspires and challenges pupils to experiment, invent and create. Through our art provision, children will increase their sense of achievement and self-confidence to explore creatively in a visual way.
We rotate our skills focus, ensuring that all elements of art are included and a progression of techniques developed. The skills of collage, drawing, painting, printing, textiles and 3D are covered.
Our art curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
- produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording experiences
- develop control in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- evaluate and reflect upon our own and others work
- explore great artists, craft makers and designers and understand their place in history and culture
