Our Art and Design Programme aims to develop a balanced progression of skills in Drawing, Painting, Printing, Collage, 3D and Fabric. There are opportunities to study and discuss the work of artists and designers. Children enjoy seeing their work on display and staff make every effort to maintain interesting displays of all pupils’ work.
Through dance, our pupils have the opportunity to be creative and to experience inspiration and enjoyment. Our pupils enjoy creating, performing and taking part in dance which contributes to their physical education and physical activity. We encourage our pupils to develop their technical skills and the quality of their movement, and use their imagination and skills to create and choreograph dance sequences. We also encourage our pupils to further develop their knowledge and understanding and their capacity to enjoy dance by giving them opportunities to evaluate performances and comment on their work and the work of others.
All pupils have opportunity to enjoy taking part in music making through singing and playing percussion instruments. Listening to music is an important part of developing their knowledge and understanding, as well as encouraging a lifelong interest and enjoyment of music. Instrumental instruction can be given during the school week by the instructors employed by the Council if they have space in their timetable. The head teacher will make further enquiries if you are interested. Music is an important part of the annual concert which every pupil takes part in.
