There are lots of opportunities for children to engage with the performing arts at school. We have Dance Club and Musical Theatre Club running currently, along with lots of instrumental and singing tuition. Have a look at some pictures below for an insight into what goes on in some of our clubs!

Instrumental and Singing Lessons

Performing Arts Day 2017

Recently, the whole school had the chance to try lots of different performing arts activities. Everybody worked in mixed-age classes and moved around the school trying out different lessons linked to the performing arts. The activities included dance, drama, percussion playing, learning the ukulele, shadow puppets, mask design, stop-motion film making, musical theatre and magic! Have a look at what we got up to…

 

Recently our Dance Club performed at the Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival with hundreds of children from other schools. The theme was ‘Going Global’, and we enjoyed watching the routines other schools had put together. Our dance was titled ‘World Beats’ and used music and dance inspired by Africa, samba drum beats, and Ireland.

During our music celebration assembly, we enjoyed watching a lot of performers showing a range of different musical skills. Well done to all the musicians and dancers who performed!

The Bossy Christmas Fairy – what a show!

Year 5 and 6 presented a magical performance of The Wizard of Oz!

Our choir at the 2015 “Carols by Candlelight”

There are music clubs, including the choir, recorder club and school band.

We love drama!  The children in Mrs Todd and Mrs Jones’ class had a great time in their drama workshop.

Year 2 loved learning some new dance skills in this workshop.
