Intent:

As a school, we strongly believe, that through our curriculum, children should feel connected to the world in which they live. Our Curriculum is driven by the need to prepare children for life in a forever changing, diverse and multicultural world as well as developing a love of lifelong learning.

At Burnham-on-Crouch Primary School, Art is an important part of the childrenโ€™s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum for all children. Our Art curriculum intends to ensure that all pupils are engaged, inspired and challenged enabling them to produce creative, imaginative work. Their developing knowledge, skills and understanding will equip them to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. Children have the opportunity to explore their ideas and record their experiences using a range of materials. They are taught to think critically and develop a more rigorous understating of art enabling them to explore the work of others and evaluate different creative ideas. In our multicultural and diverse society, it is important that all our children have a voice and are able to express themselves through the arts.

As a school, we are delighted to have achieved the Gold Artsmark Award which recognises the hard work and dedication of all of our staff in inspiring our pupils in the arts, culture and creativity.

Our Art curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • use a range of materials (e.g. pencil, charcoal, paint and clay) creatively to design and create their own artwork
  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • develop a wide range of art in colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space
  • become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture, sharing their ideas, experiences and imagination
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the formal language of art
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

STEM part 2: Year 5 took part in our first STEM Enrichment session on 13th September. The theme of the day was: Witches and Wizards. The children attended Potions class during the morning where they carried out a range of experiments and then made ice cream and lemonade. Care of Magical Creatures was next , where the children designed,  using a CAD programme, and made bird perches for Hedwig using woodwork skills. 
Here are some comments from the children:
โ€œI enjoyed it so much.โ€ Mia 
 โ€œIt was so funโ€ Jack 
โ€œI loved it!โ€ Ava 
โ€œIt was really exciting.โ€ Sienna 
โ€œI had a truly wonderful time.โ€ Daisy 
โ€œ I want to be an engineer.โ€ Rosa 
โ€œI love STEM!โ€ #stemeducation #psqm
