The arts provide an important part of Belvoirdale’s curriculum. Creativity and learning through the arts runs through the ethos of our school and our project based learning. We have a special budget within the school’s main budget, to ensure that each year the children experience an extensive range of live performances from; theatre companies, actors, musicians, authors, poets, artists and storytellers.
Role play and the acting out of stories and situations can be seen on a daily basis in our classrooms, it plays a vital role in the teaching of our curriculum and in helping the children to understand subjects, feelings and emotions.
Each year the school produces a Christmas show, summer musical, talent show and a year 6 leaver’s show. Other performances include church services such as Harvest, Easter and Christmas.
The life and work of the world’s greatest ever writer is taught at Belvoirdale in KS2. The school also performs a Shakespeare play in the annual national Shakespeare Schools Festival. In 2016 Year 5 performed Hamlet at The Century Theatre and at The Leicester Curve Theatre. In 2017, year 5 will be performing another play!
Music is taught through the project based curriculum and in after school clubs. Currently children in KS2 can learn to play: drums, Guitar, Ukulele, Violin and Trumpet.
There are weekly singing assemblies and a school choir. Weekly singing assemblies are supported by live piano, guitar and pre-recorded music.
Art, design and Design technology are embedded at every level of our curriculum. Many textiles and mediums are used and taught throughout the school and each term there is an after school art club for different year groups. Belvoirdale also has a working kiln.
