Creative Arts

At Hedgewood School, we recognise the importance that creative arts have in the life of all pupils.

 

We combine the subjects of art, music, dance, movement and drama to form a comprehensive and exciting approach to developing all pupils’ creativity that builds on their strengths and interests.

Our purpose built facilities and resources in school include a multi-purpose a drama room and a hall with state of the art lighting and sound. The classroom teacher delivers creative arts as well as subject specialists in, drama, and music who run weekly sessions in the classroom.

Creative arts takes on a very multi-sensory approach, in music, pupils develop their skills in composing, performing and listening. They are taught using a range techniques and resources including the use of interactive whiteboards, circle time and music making.

In art, pupils experience working with a wide range of different mediums such as clay, plaster, print, fabric, paper, glue, pastels and paint. They can study and learn about the work of specific artists and explore 2D and 3D work. We often welcome visiting artists to the school who work with the pupils and teachers in developing themes.

Through drama, pupils develop their skills in acting; working specifically on role-play, improvisation and presenting drama and stories to others. All pupils are given the opportunity to be part of a dramatic process that involves them exploring, creating, feeling, thinking, communicating, playing, moving and sensing. All lessons are based around key stage topics, which change each term.
