Creative Arts – Stage 2 Foundation Statement

Visual Arts
Students make artworks that represent a variety of subject matter and make choices about the forms and techniques used to best represent the qualities of the subject matter. They discuss reasons why artists make particular artworks and why different interpretations are possible, recognising similarities and differences in how subject matter is represented.
Activities: Visual Arts: Insect drawings, Visual Arts: Insects - 3D Sculptures, Visual Arts: Drawing Bicycles, Visual Arts: Bicycles - 3D Sculptures
Music
Students sing, play and move to music, demonstrating a basic understanding of musical concepts. They organise musical ideas into simple compositions and use understood symbols to represent these. Students listen to a range of music, identifying key features and they make some informed judgements about musical preference.
Activities: Music: Composing for performance, Music: Thematic compositions
Drama
Students use movement and voice to build the action and roles of a drama in a variety of situations. They devise and sequence drama to create meaning. Students experience and interpret a range of drama forms and elements by making, performing and appreciating drama.
Activities: Drama: Danny in the Toybox, Drama: Movement-based characterisation
Dance
Students perform dances demonstrating a range of performance qualities and increasingly complex movement skills. They explore the elements of dance in their own works and how these can be selected and combined to convey meaning. Students discuss the meaning and purpose of dance works and the roles of the creator and performer.
Activities: Dance: Action Words, Dance: Chair Dance
