Performing Arts (Music and Drama)
Right from the moment they arrive in Nursery, our children are offered plenty of opportunities to enhance and showcase their performance skills. Music is taught by one of our specialist teachers on a weekly basis to all year groups. Piano lessons are available for pupils in Year 1 and above. Further information is available within the Prep section of the website. Choir is offered as an after school club for children in Years 1 and 2, and they have the opportunity to join with our older pupils to perform at Christmas and during Prize Day in the summer term. We have a number of assemblies and productions throughout the academic year in which all pupils are involved.
It is important to ensure that our children's learning is as engaging as possible. To this end, we use the creative curriculum approach to teach many of our subjects with topics being changed termly or half termly. This allows teachers to create purposeful links between different subjects and allows children to make valuable contributions that will benefit the learning of the class as a whole. Trips each term will be based around the topics being taught.
