Oakhill Primary School has been awarded an Artsmark Silver Award, in recognition of our commitment to providing quality Arts education to our pupils.
"You have clearly demonstrated that you promote arts and culture values and that all teaching staff understand the ambitions and are engaged in developing them." - Arts Council England
Our most recent Art themed day was based on the artist Edward Tingatinga. We worked in our teams to create work in the style of Tingatinga.
At Oakhill we want our children to develop a love for music. In their lessons the will learn:
know and understand how sounds are made and then organised into musical structures;
know how music is made through a variety of instruments;
know how music is composed and written down;
know how music is influenced by the time, place and purpose for which it was written;
develop the interrelated skills of performing, composing and appreciating music.
Children in KS1 will learn these skills through singing and playing a range of percussion instruments. All children in KS2 learn the ukulele in weekly lessons. Children also have the opportunity to sign up to RockSteady in which they can learn either vocals, keyboard, drums or guitar.
There are also music clubs that happen each week: drum club, ukulele club and choir.
