At Barnton Community Nursery and Primary School we value the arts as a way for our children to express their own creativity. The Arts include: Art and Design, Dance, Music, Creative Writing, Drama, Poetry. Creative writing, drama and poetry are taught through English and topics. Art and Design, Dance, and Music are taught within topics.
Whole school art weeks give the opportunity for children to work on large projects over time, allowing them the opportunity to work with a variety of media, techniques and themes – linking different aspects of the Arts to develop independent learning.
