The Arts

The Arts

Whether it be singing or learning the ukulele in the music rooms, sawing and drilling in the DT room, rolling and moulding clay in the ceramics room or dancing in the hall, there is huge scope for children to express their creativity at Moor Park.

The quality of art work in the Pre-prep is amazing. Colour, pattern and form make the classrooms bright and vibrant with displays of work from comfy cushions, sewn with name letters and bead decorations, to scary sea monsters decorated with colourful paper swirls, concertinas and spirals!

All of the children gain much from the facilities and specialist staff of the Prep School. The children love visiting the DT room for woodwork where they make bird houses, wooden cars and moving toys. They also create ceramic pots, fish and funny faces in the art room.

 

Music

We love music and singing in the Pre-Prep, and the introduction of a Pre-Prep choir for Year 1 and 2 has been a great success, with the children performing at both smaller and whole school events. Year 2 are taught to play the ukulele and the recorder and we all look forward to their performances in the Spring Festival.

Our newly introduced Mini-Music Maker classes for Kindergarten are a fun and active introduction to music for our youngest children and these feed well into the specialist taught music that continues throughout the Pre-Prep.

 

Drama

Drama is taught, in the Pre-Prep as part of the English curriculum. Role play is a key learning tool for developing story writing skills, and drama games are often used to accompany PSHE and circle time sessions. There are many opportunities for the Pre-Prep children to perform across the year. Regular class assemblies allow the children to build their confidence in a familiar and safe setting, and the children enjoy hugely, our visits from ‘Open the Book’, who invite the children to join in performances of familiar bible stories.

Christmas is a special time of year in the Pre-Prep. Reception to Year 2 work hard on their wonderful Christmas production which is performed to a large audience at the end of term. The show is always stolen by the Kindergarten children, who end the performance with their own Nativity.

The Lent term is a time for variety, and each class perform, sing and dance in our Spring Festival.

Many pupils start to study Speech & Drama in their early years at Moor Park. A team of dedicated staff ensure that individual and small group lessons are beneficial and rewarding.
