Creative Arts

Creative Arts

We are a creative school that nurtures the children's creativity through teaching a broad art curriculum, through art competitions, and participation in the Arts Award Explore and Discover schemes. Children across the school also have the opportunity to work with a professional artist who comes in to teach every Monday afternoon. The children are also involved each year in city-wide art projects (e.g. The Smithfield Market design) and Arts Week. 

 

Music sessions are taught across the school using the Charanga music programme. Children learn to sing and play instruments which include percussion, glockenspiels and djembes. They also listen to a wide variety of music, and learn to read and write Music, and compose their own pieces. Keyboard and guitar lessons are also taught every week by teachers from Birmingham Music service, who also support children to achieve ABRSM Music Medals. Every term, all children perform in our Music concerts, to celebrate their musical achievements. 

Singing at the Local Residential Home

 

Performance club attended the local residential home to sing some Christmas carols! They were brilliant and thoroughly enjoyed themselves - as did the residents! We hope to return in the Spring to show off some more of our fantastic singing!

The children from Reception, Year 1 and Year 3 were treated to a performance from the KES Outreach programme. Both children and staff thouroughly enjoyed the performance and children were highly engaged. The children commented:

"I liked the piano and I would like to play it one day." 

"The incredible music was nice."

"I like the tune when they were playing." 

"I liked it when they sang Merry Christmas." 

"I liked the voices when they were singing."

Arts Week

Arts week has been inspired by our Sun Bear 'Lord Regent of the Forest'. Children entered creative competitions: design our sun bear; make and bake competition ( see twitter for the videos) and the library poster competition. Everyone had fun working on an arts project and the creativity extended to the forest school where sessions led by our forest school teachers were all about getting creative with natural resources. Our Cake sale raised £1000 for the Birmingham Children's Hospital.
