At Wordsworth Primary school we believe that a ‘Creative Curriculum’ nurtures the whole child. We place a strong emphasis on the Creative Arts as this helps to provide motivation and inspiration in other subjects. The Creative Arts include Art and Design, Music, Dance, Drama, Creative writing and Digital Media.
There are also a range of additional enrichment activities and opportunities within the school curriculum, such as Tough Mudders, Cookery, Kick boxing, Topic dress up/ activity days (for example V.E. Day in Year 4.) A range of lunchtime and afterschool clubs offer children enrichment across the Creative Arts and we are developing and extending links with local schools, both within and outside the JET trust.
Each KS2 class has two Arts Ambassadors who are responsible for looking out for Arts opportunities in their year group and promoting the Arts across the school. Such opportunities include instrumental tuition and clubs, Art club, Drama club, Dance clubs, poetry competitions, library challenges, Rock Challenge and many more.
