Our curriculum offers lots of opportunities for children to develop their many talents.
In the Early Years children are given opportunities to explore and use a variety of different media to create wonderful imaginative creations in Art and Expressive Design.
Throughout school children paint, sketch, collage and explore different materials to enhance their learning in Art and Design. Whole school Art projects fire children’s imagination and enhance our school environment.
Our Music curriculum offers every child the opportunity to sing, to play an instrument, to explore sound and to compose.
Every child learns to play the recorder. Children are also offered lessons in violin, brass, guitar and drums.
Our school choir enjoys performing and are given the opportunity to sing and compete in a number of competitions and festivals throughout each year.
Our pupils love to dance and we are lucky to have a specialist Dance Teacher from Sanderson's School of dance to teach all pupils.
Pupils also have the chance to be part of our Cheerdance Team which takes part in a number of events and competitions during the school year.
At St Joseph’s Park Hill we excel in Performing Arts.
Children have the opportunity to perform in Assemblies and whole school productions. Our annual end of year production which involves all the children in Key Stage 2 is a wonderful celebration of the children's talents in singing and performance and is keenly anticipated by parents, staff and pupils.
Our end of year productions, which include the whole of KS2 are keenly anticipated and parents, staff and pupils look forward to celebrating our children’s talents in singing and performing.
Many of our children enjoy the “I-Can” Extra-Curricular Club which is run by Basics, a well-renowned and much respected local Performing Arts School. The activities taught include song, dance and performing skills but the main focus is on developing confidence and self-esteem.
