At Burpham Primary School we make Performing Arts an enjoyable learning experience. All of our children are given a wide variety of creative experiences through which we increase their social and emotional well-being, as well as building their confidence.
Performing Arts unite our school as children and staff perform together through singing. We have regular performances in school as well as in our local community, singing brings us together as one school family. In lessons we explore relevant issues and creative concepts in a vibrant, engaging manner. Our lessons are fun, they boost the children's self-esteem and help them express feelings and emotions.
Performing Arts play an important part in our lives, encouraging speaking and listening skills, empathy, self confidence, leadership and negotiation. All of our children use musical instruments which develop co-ordination and fine motor skills. Music lessons enhance mathematical reasoning and processing as well as exploring different cultures. Drama lessons develop communication, resilience and above all respect.
