Arts Term

In term 6 the whole school are learning through the Arts from the National Curriculum.

In Art and design, the focus is Craftmakers and we have a number of craftspeople organised to come in and share their craftmaking skills with the children.

The children will be involved in: block printing, pompom making, iris folding, sock bunny making, cross stitching, designing and making stage scenery, jewellery making, bottletop picture designing and creating.

In Music the focus is on composing and we have several musicians coming in to school to perform to inspire the children to develop a love of music.

We look forward to listening to popular music from Jodie Mellor (a former pupil), a classic pianist, a folk band,  an opera company and listening to Greek music.
