Performing Arts Education is about the children appreciating and understanding Music, Dance and Drama through the fundamental experiences of composing, performing, listening to and appraising their own and others’ contributions. They are practical, creative subjects which can benefit all children in developing imagination, the ability to listen/watch attentively and to express thoughts and feelings. Performing Arts opportunities are open to all children at Hagley Primary School regardless of gender and ability. They are given the chance to perform at Harvest, Christmas, Easter and at the end of Year 6 where they speak, sing, act, play or dance in concerts to the school, family and friends and to the wider community each year. Children in Key Stage Two are able to take part in extra -curricular Performing Arts opportunities e.g.: Choir, Dance club, or learning to play one of the many musical instruments on offer. We hope that these opportunities will inspire children to work together, to feel happy about themselves, the environment and the world they live in. All children are taught Music as outlined in the 2014 National Curriculum programmes of study, based on knowledge, skill, understanding and breadth of study. Key Stage One pupils are taught Music by the Class Teacher and Key Stage Two pupils are taught by a specialist teacher.
