Art stimulates creativity and imagination. Understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts has the power to enrich our lives. During their time in school, children are introduced to a wide variety of creative activities including drawing, painting, modelling, printing and needlecraft, and they are taught to use materials with precision and care.

Design and Technology

Design and Technology is about making things. Children are able to work on a range of designing and making activities. They explore how familiar things work and think about what products are used for and the needs of people who use them. They plan what has to be done and identify what works well and what could be improved in their own and other people’s designs.

Music and Dance

Music and Dance play a large part in our school life and are taught to all classes; we are fortunate to have specialist teachers for these subjects.

The teaching of Music develops children’s ability to listen and appreciate a wide variety of music, as well as giving them opportunities to sing and make music. Children have opportunities to learn to play a range of percussion instruments, as well as cello, violin, guitar, recorder and ukulele. We also offer a number of after-school music lessons which include tuition in saxophone, violin and guitar, and two early morning choir classes.

In Dance, children learn to create and perform dances using a range of movement patterns, including those from different periods of time, places and cultures. We also offer after-school dance classes.
