Creative Arts Week
The children explore a range of art and craft techniques, aswell as participate in music, drama and dance activities.
The children turn into authors and get to write their own stories, create front covers of books, dress up as their favourite authors characters and meet a real life author too!
As well as having a special themed week, we also have special events which take place throughout the year either specific to each year group or as a whole school.
