‘Art is a place for children to learn to trust their ideas, themselves, and to explore what is possible.’
I am Miss Burgoyne and I lead art at Rose Hill Primary School.
I feel so privileged to lead such an important subject. Art has always been a huge part of my life. My love for art started early in my childhood, whilst being inspired by my Dad, who is an artist in Bristol. I used to watch him create his amazing paintings in the study and felt inspired to create my own artwork. I loved how I could express my ideas, thoughts, and feelings through art. I thoroughly enjoyed art at school and went on to study art at GCSE, A-Level and University. Now I get the pleasure of seeing the children at Rose Hill develop their creativity as they embark on their own artistic journeys.
The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
- produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
- become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
- evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
- know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms
What does this look like at Rose Hill?
At Rose Hill we believe EVERY child is an artist. We provide an exciting and enriching art curriculum, which aims to engage, inspire, and challenge our pupils. Art is taught through three exciting art units, that are covered every year. The units are: Drawing and Sketchbooks, Surface and Colour, and Working in 3D. During these units, children have opportunities to develop skills in drawing, painting, collage, printing, and sculpture. These carefully planned units equip our children with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art.
Every child in Years 1- 6 has a sketchbook, which is used creatively to explore art media, develop understanding, reflect, evaluate, and respond to the work of artists. Sketchbooks do not follow the school’s presentation or marking policy. Sketchbooks are at the centre of the children’s creativity and at Rose Hill we feel very strongly that it belongs to them. It is their safe space to freely express themselves, explore, develop ideas, create, and learn.
At Rose Hill we believe there is no ‘wrong’ in art as art is an individual, personal journey for all of us. We strive to ensure all our children are given the opportunities to develop confidence and value their efforts so they can appreciate the artist within them. I can’t wait to continue to see the journey that the children go on, as artists, at Rose Hill.
