Drama, Singing and Instrumental lessons
At Bar Hill School we encourage risk taking and having the young people “put themselves out there” by offering a range of performance opportunities supported by curricular and extra-curricular opportunities.
In order to develop greater self-awareness and skills of personal reflection and teamwork we offer Drama in Years 5 and 6. These lessons have proven to be very popular and enhance an impressive wider curriculum. They also have contributed towards the very high standards of our regular dramatic performances throughout the year.
Along with Music lessons, we have regular singing assemblies during which the children enjoy singing in parts/harmony led by a trained musician and have singing competitions, such as the House singing competition and auditions for the Christmas Lessons and Carols Concert.
We have a growing number of children who are learning musical instruments in school. It is not only fun but also helps boost many other areas of learning too, including cultivating self- discipline and perseverance. We have regular performances in assembly from pupils learning instruments and concerts throughout the year to share some of the wonderful music making we have going in school.
Please note: If you are eligible for Pupil Premium we could possibly use some of the funding to support music lessons. If you have any queries about this, then please contact Mrs Bacon or your child’s class teacher.
