At St. Bridget’s Primary School subjects included in ‘The Arts’ contributes to the development of the whole child emotionally, aesthetically, spiritually, intellectually and socially. It enables them to express themselves creatively and makes a valuable contribution to the wider curriculum.
As a school, we are totally committed to a full and rounded education for our pupils. We believe that ‘The Arts’ incorporate several subject areas – Music, Dance, Drama and Art and Design. The Arts are a means of communication which can help children to explore, understand, share and represent their physical and human environment. It is an important means by which they can express their feelings and ideas. These areas of learning are linked through our topics.
Children have opportunities to join in after school clubs linked to ‘The Arts’, perform in Christmas and end of year shows and also capture experiences and responses with a range of media, such as music, dance and paint and other materials or words. We also have craft workshops.
In our Music lessons children are taught to listen to different styles of music with attention to detail and recall sounds. They learn to appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians, by doing this they develop an understanding of the history of music.
