At Moseley we offer a wide range of exciting and educational opportunities to enhance skills, talents and creativity. We aim to teach Art in a creative and engaging way. The school has adopted the International Primary Curriculum in the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, as a tool to deliver Art as part of a topic led curriculum. The International Primary Curriculum ensures that the school meets all aspects of the Art curriculum set out in the National Curriculum document (2014).
We also develop the children’s creativity through our Creative Arts Week each year. The children across the school work with artists and parents, taking part in a range of exciting art and creative based activities.

WHAT ARE THE RANGE OF LEARNING EXPERIENCES AND TEACHING STRATEGIES?
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
We teach art and design in the EYFS as an integral part of the topic work covered during the year. In the EYFS art and design contributes to a child’s development in the area of expressive arts and design. We provide rich indoor and outdoor environments in which we encourage and value creativity. Children experience a wide range of activities that they respond to, using the various senses. The activities that they take part in are imaginative and enjoyable.
Key Stage 1
During Key Stage 1, art and design is about developing children’s creativity and imagination through providing art, craft and design activities that relate to children’s own identity and experiences, the natural and made objects and materials with which they are familiar and the locality in which they live.
Key Stage 2
During Key Stage 2, art and design is about developing children’s creativity and imagination by building on their knowledge, skills and understanding of materials and processes through providing more complex activities. Children’s experiences help them to develop their understanding of the diverse roles and functions of art and design in the locality and in the wider world.
