Art and D&T
At Dorothy Barley Junior Academy we are committed to children accessing a range of lessons including The Arts. Children have attended The Young Voices concert at the O2, performing in front of hundreds of people, we have attended the local authority Music Festival hosted by other schools.
In Year 5 all children learn the violin. Children listen and appraise music weekly with the opportunity to compose their own piece of music at the end of each term. Charanga is used to support Music across the school.
Further to this, we hold an annual The Arts Week at the school, where the children are fully immersed in The Arts which include creating an art piece to sell to their parents at the end of the week, creating drama pieces and listening to music based on their topic.
We have had themes of ‘Colours’ and ‘Around the World’ which the children have enjoyed.
