Participating in performing arts, be that learning an instrument, taking to the stage in a theatrical production or learning to sing, develops children’s confidence, teaches crucial life lessons and brings them huge enjoyment and satisfaction. Here at Anglesey we want to ensure that every child has the opportunity to be involved in performing arts throughout the school.
We aim to provide all children with access to one hour of musical education per week through musical assemblies and curriculum lessons in the afternoon. Some year groups have the opportunity to widen their musical education by learning to play an instrument in weekly music lessons led by a passionate, specialist teacher.
At Anglesey, we are very proud to be able to offer children the opportunity to partake in music lessons outside of class time; we currently offer piano lessons and violin lessons as well as a fantastic ‘Music Club’ which offers children the opportunity to try out a range of different instruments.
Pupils across Anglesey also have the opportunity be involved in a range of theatrical performances throughout the academic year. The school hosts several performances at Christmas (across all Key Stages) and the KS2 Drama Club proudly showcases two original performances each year. Furthermore, regular class assemblies offer different children the chance to hone their presentation and performance skills.
By offering children opportunities to be involved in performing arts, we are also offering them the opportunity to develop skills outside of the purely academic and become confident and committed individuals.
