art and design
At Phoenix Infant Academy, we strive to foster a love of Art. This, we do, through our commitment to offer first-hand experiences to all children, both in and out the classroom, our engagement with parents/carers, as well as ensuring our non-specialist teaching staff have a secure understanding of the curriculum they teach. From the children's art gallery in the Principal's office, to meaningful displays around the school - our children's creativity is always celebrated.
Using Cornerstones Curriculum 22, Phoenix Infant Academy provides an Art and Design curriculum that helps build pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills over time; delivers clear expectations on what pupils will know and be able to do with their knowledge and skills at curriculum ‘end points’; and does so within the context of our specific school community.
Through such projects as 'Mix It' (Year 1) and 'Flower Head' (Year 2), skills and knowledge including those of visual elements, art forms, artists and art movements, are taught and revisited.
We pride ourselves on the art experiences and provision we offer our children. This includes external visits from artists including Helen Elliott, taking part in International Dot Day, and also creating art galleries for parents to visit.
Our curriculum documents can be viewed below.
