Each Year group is working hard this term exploring Art throughout their Theme lessons. Each year group is currently exploring art while studying The Romans, The Stone Age, Victorian Inventions and Ancient Egypt. Look below to see the Art that the children created last term.
Music is taught to each class once a fortnight. Children learn to listen to and appreciate music and develop the language in which to speak about what they hear. We speak about the inter-related dimensions of music and are beginning to look at how music is written.
In our school many children are also taking part in different musical instrument lessons. Year 4, 5 and 6 children are given the opportunity to take violin lessons and year 5 and 6 children can take guitar lessons.
The Blue Peter Badge for Music
Did you know you can apply for a Blue Peter badge for music? This badge has been specially designed by Ed Sheeran. Some children in year 5 have already written applications to Blue Peter which demonstrate their knowledge of and interest in music. We look forward to successful replies.
Our Musical School
The children taking instrumental lessons on guitar and violin took the opportunity today to share their talents with the whole school. Demonstrating confidence and skill, they performed in their class groups. Well done children. Should you wish to learn either of these instruments then a new set of applications will be opened in the new academic year.
