Expressive Arts

Art

P4 – 7 classes have lessons with the visiting specialist teacher as well as the class teacher. Art is an important form of expression and communication for children.
This also develops co-ordination, control and visual perception.
There is a specific Art Room.

Music

All children receive lessons from the visiting specialist teacher as well as their class teacher. 
There is a choir and recorder groups and all children have the opportunity to play a wide variety of percussion instruments.
Children who have an interest in playing the violin or trumpet can be tested for aptitude and if successful will receive lessons from a visiting tutor. There is a charge for this service.

Drama

This is also an important, if often neglected, form of children?s development. It incorporates many other subjects such as English Language and Personal and Social Education.
Primary 1 – 3 classes use the BBC Radio series “Let?s Move” and “Time to Move” as a basis for their programme and older children use role play, published plays and their own writing.
On occasions the children may perform a play or give a presentation to other classes or the rest of the school.
