Christ Church Arts Project
We believe in enriching our curriculum by providing the highest-quality arts experiences for all the children at Christ Church and our Christ Church Arts Project is an important part of the life of our school.
Funding raised by our Friends Association provides the school with the opportunity to run two arts-based, whole school projects each year including workshops for children, visits to relevant galleries or concerts, training for staff and visits to school by arts professionals. Projects in recent years have focused on dance, jewellery-making, singing, self-portraits, textiles and musical theatre and we always have great fun and pride in sharing our work with parents and wider community through exhibitions, performances and concerts.
Autumn 2018 – Singing
We linked our Arts Project in this term to our Happiness Project promoting positive emotional well-being across the school. We had a wonderful time singing ‘Happy Songs’ together!
Spring 2018 – Musical theatre
Every child took part in our musical production of ‘Joseph’ in March 2018.
We loved the costumes, the lights, the stage, the singing and the dancing!
Autumn 2017 – Self-portraits
Every child created a super self-portrait for our exhibition. Each class used different media or followed the style of a different artist.
