Project Create | Summer Term

“Project Create has given me a chance to be creative, imaginative, learn new skills and produce something amazing at the end.” - Year 4 Child

Our Create Projects are taught in the summer term and carefully integrate Music, Art and Design and Design and Technology. 

 

Art and Design

At Elmhurst School we recognise that Art and Design stimulate creativity and imagination. Our curriculum is designed to provide visual, tactile and sensory experiences that enable children to communicate what they see, feel and think, by exploring colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. We provide opportunities for children to explore ideas and meaning through a range of artists and designers; learning about the role and function of art within their own community and that of the wider world. It is our aim for children to aspire to a deeper appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts and an understanding of the role it plays in enriching lives. 

 

Music

We believe that music is a powerful and unique form of communication that can impact the way we feel, think and act. The curriculum is designed to integrate music in a way that enables children to identify the complexities of music through analysis of a wide range of genres from different musical and cultural perspectives. Through our teaching, we aim to promote self-confidence and creativity and develop aspiring musicians that are able to develop an expressive and reflective appreciation of music. We provide opportunities for all children to explore, create, play,  compose and perform music in a variety of contexts.
