We intend to provide our children with the opportunities to develop their hidden talents and broaden their minds, enabling them to appreciate other artistic perspectives. This, in turn, will open up a wider world of opportunities. Through the development of knowledge around sources, cause & consequence and their own questioning and interpretations of a range of artists styles and periods, children will be creative and reflective individuals with a mutual respect for others’ efforts.
Children explore Art through a wide range of topics and hands-on opportunities. This exploration is implemented with a range of sources, media, visits, workshops and virtual experiences that enhance the development of knowledge. Our curriculum is planned as such that it provides our children with regular opportunities to revise and revisit their learning. Lessons contain practical application with a range of media across all areas of art and design. Children actively partake in the reflective learning process, through planning, creating and evaluating a variety of projects. They present their knowledge in a variety of ways, both teacher and child-led. Children engage with peer to peer constructive feedback to learn to be respectful and appreciative of other artistic perspectives.
Children of MBHT leave school beginning to understand their own individuality and perspective through creative platforms. They are confident to use a range of practical skills and know how to utilise equipment safely and effectively. They will develop a broad range of subject knowledge that enables them to engage, inspire and challenge themselves and others within the creativity of art. This is then a platform for children to explore their future with a well-informed knowledgeable understanding of opportunities that require an experimental and creative mind.
