Planning the curriculum to be experienced through humanity-based themes ensures that all learning happens within a rich and engaging context by which the children learn about the world they live in, the people in it and the times that have come before. Using the themes from ‘prospects improve’ ensures a thorough and varied experience.
Learning through the creative arts provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences as an engaging way of understanding and responding to the world. It stimulates creativity and imagination, enabling children to communicate what they see, feel and think using a variety of processes and materials, thus embedding understanding more meaningfully. Outcomes in the arts are included in all units of work including Art, Dance, Music and Performance Poetry.
Visits to museums, galleries, the theatre and the cinema provide a rich cultural experience for our children.
Learning through the Arts is enhanced by regular workshop and projects with a range of quality providers in the Arts such as Arts First, the Worshipful Company of Musicians and the House of Illustration.
