Art is an integral part of our curriculum at The Beacon. We believe that art, in its many forms, stimulates creativity and imagination, providing children with a variety of opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. Through dance, drama, music, film and creative art, all children are provided with a wealth of unique first hand experiences.  

In EYFS children experiment with media and materials finding out about their properties and modifying and manipulating them. As part of Expressive Arts and Design children will explore patterns, colours and different tools and techniques. Our long term planning in KS1 and KS2 covers six developmental areas: drawing, painting, printing, collage, 3D and textiles. Teachers plan lessons which provide a wide breadth of opportunities to experience art across the curriculum as well as exploring the history of art, movements and individual artists.

Learning Together, Following Jesus
