The Creative Arts provide exposure to a range of art forms, including music, art design and crafts, drama and dance. This bedrock is to develop our children as creative, imaginative individuals who appreciate the arts and who have the knowledge and skills to participate across all our arts activities. Pupils take part in drama, dance and art workshops and school productions that allow children of different ages to work together, enriching their skills, experience, enthusiasm and sense of community.
The Creative Arts are vibrant and meaningful school experiences. Children will take part in weekly Music lessons, a separate Singing lesson and in KS2 the introduction of Recorder, Music Theory and Drama. During their specialised Art lessons, children are introduced to different ways of generating and developing ideas. A wide range of materials and techniques are taught, including drawing, painting, computer graphics, printmaking, ceramics, wire and plaster sculpture and collage.
Throughout the year the children take part in Key Stage Productions, School Services, Assemblies, Competitions and represent the school by supporting local events and community projects and charities. Peripatetic teachers enhance the children’s musical education, offering Singing, Piano, Guitar, Ukulele, Accordion, Violin and Drum lessons.
