Hatherleigh Community Primary School Caring about learning and learning to care

Creative Arts

At Hatherleigh School we aim to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. 

Creative Thursday gives them access to different elements of art, music and dance. This complements learning in class where they have the opportunity to use different medium and respond to different stimuli.

Creative Arts week. July 6th -10th

Some of the year 4 recorder group were able to play 3 carols at the PTFA shopping night on Wednesday. They were joined by a small group who sang a few Christmas songs beautifully.

This year several members of staff are running Band Club. Children are learning to play the violins, double bases, button accordions, guitars. mandolins, tin whistles and flute.
