At Roose Primary School we believe that the creative arts provide rich sources of experiences and understandings that cannot be gained in any other way. We aim to instill in pupils an appreciation of beauty and an awareness of how creativity depends on technical mastery. Through Art and Design, they learn to draw, paint and sculpt as well as design and create aesthetically pleasing objects in two and three dimensions. Through Music, they learn to sing, compose, listen, evaluate and explore how music is created, produced and communicated.
We encourage children to be curious about different cultures and traditions by placing it as an important outlet for the communication of ideas, feelings and beliefs and as major sources of intellectual, physical, spiritual and emotional development, understanding and enjoyment. We aim to foster a love of the arts in our pupils which can develop throughout the rest of their lives.
