Performing Arts

Performing ArtsThe Performing Arts programme at Nailsworth Primary School focuses on Music and Drama, although Dance is incorporated where it is relevant and engages students.

From Foundation to Year 2, Music, Drama and Dance are woven together to develop positive social interactions and essential learning skills such as memory and concentration. The “Elements of Music” such as beat, rhythm and pitch are developed sequentially to ensure thorough musical preparation.  From Year 3 onwards, students learn to play a variety of instruments including recorder, xylophones and ukulele.

 In Drama, empathy is developed through embodying different characters, settings and situations while learning the “Elements of Drama”. Acting skills such as voice projection and good posture are nurtured and help many students develop the confidence to speak in public.

 Instrumental lessons are offered through private instructors during school hours.This is a user-pay offering. Please refer to the instrumental music tab on this site.

 Performance Opportunities

Students can be part of a Junior or Senior Choir, School Band or Drama Club. Each year a Performing Arts Showcase is held in Term 4 to allow students to share what they have learnt.  Individual classes present at assemblies and other special events such as a Book Week Concert every two years.
