At All Saints’ we recognise the importance of making the curriculum real and relevant for our children by incorporating an understanding of the geography and history of our locality. Topic work often includes visits to places that help the children’s learning really come to life, particularly those which are local and thus make the most of our environment.
The children receive opportunities to explore materials and use a variety of media. Art, along with Music and PE are seen as important developmental points for primary aged children and we seek to show them enjoyment of the arts as well as learning practical skills. Children learn to both compose and perform musical pieces and appreciate different styles and forms of music. In some year groups we have specialist teaching such as African Drumming. A significant number of the children have individual or small group lessons (on a fee paying basis) during the week on the guitar or brass instruments.
