Performing Arts and Drama

At Forest Park we teach drama and performance as part of the English curriculum. Drama allows children to explore creative ideas, text structures and story lines and experiment with characters and settings. This directly supports their writing, giving them the confidence to try new styles and adapt their writing to suit an audience. It also provides pupils with a personal sense of achievement which develops their personal skills, manifesting an ability to perform and present themselves with confidence.

Music and Performance

Children have the opportunity to enjoy musical experiences through listening, singing, movement and dance and by playing tuned and untuned percussion. Music is taught as a discrete subject and as a means of supporting other areas of the curriculum in order to give pupils the best opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in this area of the curriculum.

The school has a number of very strong vocal groups, which in recent years, along with many community events, have performed at The Children’s Trust Concert at the Manchester Cathedral, The Christmas Lights ceremonies in Sale, and at the Altrincham Music Festival.

Art and Design and Technology

Through design and technology, the children are encouraged to identify, examine and solve practical problems and to make existing situations better. The children are encouraged to be inventive, using a range of materials and tools, thus developing, modifying and evaluating their ideas through a series of projects.

The children are encouraged to be spontaneously creative, using a variety of media and techniques in art and craftwork. An awareness of colour, shape, balance, focus and proportion are developed alongside the use of symbols to convey ideas and feelings. The study of a wide range of artists, craftspeople and designers complements this work.
