Music and Drama
This unit allows our children opportunities to explore, discuss and deal with difficult issues and to express their emotions in a supportive environment. Such opportunities encourage our children to learn actively and interactively and to develop such skills as creativity, enquiry, communication, empathy, self-confidence, cooperation, leadership and negotiation. Most importantly, drama activities are fun – making learning both enjoyable and memorable.
In addition the children can learn an instrument. Currently the children learn a range of instruments: Ukulele, African drums, hand bells, ocarinas, recorders, xylophone and glockenspiels….learning to read music notation too! It is an amazing opportunity for the children to explore different instruments and to come together to perform collaboratively. Again learning an instrument takes patience and practice which in turn develops resilience.
