The Arts

This Area of Learning comprises the subjects of Art and Design, Drama and Music. 

Children’s creative, expressive and physical development is closely linked with all aspects of their learning. Children should be given opportunities to explore and share their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of: art and design, music, movement, dance, dramatic and role-play activities.

Through taking part in a range of well-planned activities, children’s fine and gross motor skills will develop, they will gain confidence in what they can do and this will help build their self-esteem.

This area is greatly showcased here at Saint Mary’s through our Art displays, Musical concerts, Class assemblies, and Christmas plays and through the school's rich involvement in religious and community performances.

Children will develop their appreciation of the world around them and awareness of their own and other cultures.

Here at Saint Mary’s our children are encouraged to express themselves freely through individuality and expression. This develops children’s confidence and self- esteem and helps them to make informed choices and decisions. Children’s efforts and talents are truly appreciated and recognised within our school.
