Creative and Expressive Arts
The Importance of The Arts
"The arts are not a luxury. They are as crucial to our well-being, to our very existence, as eating and breathing. Access to them should not be restricted to a privileged few. Nor are they the playground of the intelligentsia. The arts are for everyone – and failure to include everyone diminishes us all."
Sir David Attenborough
The Creative and Expressive Arts are an important part of everyday life at Mission Grove. Children take part in art and music lessons weekly which art taught by their class teachers. Dance is taught in PE sessions, but is also used to enhance learning in other subjects. Drama is used in all subjects to enhance learning, this might be children retelling a story in literacy, acting out the life cycle of a plant in science, or reenacting important events in history lessons like The Great Fire of London.
In this section of the curriculum you can find out about lots of ways that we are creative at Mission Grove.
