Music, Art, Design and Technology
Subject Leads Claire Baldwin and Helen Livanos
At The Meads, our Music curriculum intends to inspire creativity and self-expression as well as giving the children opportunities to connect with others. Throughout their musical journey, we hope to foster a life-long love of music by exposing them to diverse musical experiences and igniting a passion for music. By listening and responding to different musical styles the children will find their voices as singers and performers and as composers, which will enable them to become confident, reflective musicians.
At The Meads, we aim for children to become confident and enthusiastic artists equipped with a range of techniques that they can creatively apply. They will be able to take inspiration from other artists and reflect on and evaluate their work to develop their own artwork and skills.
Design and Technology
At The Meads, our Design and Technology curriculum allows children to develop a broad range of knowledge, skills and understanding, and prompts engagement in a wide variety of activities. Children design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. Through evaluation of past and present Design and Technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
