The Arts

Through the teaching of the Arts, we aim to stimulate creativity and imagination. We want our art sessions to provide the children we teach with visual, tactile and sensory experiences, providing a special way of understanding and responding to the world.

We aim to enable children to communicate what they see, feel and think, through allowing them to explore music, drama, dance and art that is delivered through a wide variety of subjects and topic work.

We want children to become involved in shaping their enviroments and learning through activities that enable them to achieve and be proud of what they accomplish, when taking part in competitions and workshops.

They will learn to make informed judgements and asthetic and practical decisions.They will explore ideas and meaning through the work of the artists they work with and learn about.

Through learning about the roles and functions of the arts, they can explore the impact it has had on contemporary life and on different periods and cultures. Our aim is to develop each individual child's appreciation and enjoyment of the arts to enrich their learning and life experiences.
