Tyldesley Primary Arts Journey
Art, music, dance and drama provide children with a creative outlet to express themselves and develop an understanding of the world. Here at Tyldesley Primary School, the arts curriculum is taken beyond the classroom. This gives the children the opportunity to engage, inspire and challenge themselves within the wider school community. Allowing them to learn new skills, fuel their imagination, build relsilience and develop socially.
Some of the children from Year 5 and 6 have had the wonderful opportunity to work with some of the Year 11 dancers from our local high school. Over a 7 week period, the children have worked hard and enjoyed learning a dance routine. They then showcased their amazing work alongside other primary schools at the primary evening of dance. Well done to each and every one of you.
What an amazing performance!
One of the best things about being in Year 4 is that children take part in the Wider Opportunities music programme where they get the chance to learn a variety of percussion instruments over the course of the year. Throughout autumn term, the children have focused on creating performance pieces using body percussion, cups, the bamboo tamboos and boomwhackers. The children really enjoyed all the pieces – especially learning rhythms using the bamboo tamboos in order the perform the sea shanty ‘The Wellerman’.
Year 5 and 6 Christmas Carol Concert
Y6 have been developing their presentation and public speaking skills.
In science, Y3 and Y6 have been learning all about light. The Y3 children really enjoyed listening to Y6 performing their presentations. Lots of questions were asked and answered. Well done Y6!
Celebrating World Book Day
The children designed and made their own geography games which they made for their end of unit task on Volcanoes and Earthquakes. To show their learning and progress, they played the games answering questions correctly in order to win.
5 children from Tyldesley primary school took part in a new event, 'Let's Play!', alongside children from 6 other local primary schools. During the event, they played instrumental solos or duets to an audience of children and parents/family members.
