The Arts


Art specialist teaching opens the creative world to our pupils and often links to a wider context being explored in other subjects. Pupils begin to think critically and develop their visual literacy. They explore culturally and ethnically diverse artists - the world is bursting with fascinating individuals who represent themselves in a variety of ways. Art explores many of these. Pupils develop their fine motor skills and feel pride when completing a unit and are able to show their outcome. Much of the art can be seen on displays throughout the corridors at Latton Green. Each year children have the opportunity to visit an art gallery or exhibition and have even had the opportunity of having their own art work displayed in an exhibition.


Specialist music has been introduced to our pupils for a number of reasons. Pupils who have early musical training will develop the areas of the brain related to language and reasoning. Learning music promotes craftsmanship, and students learn to want to create good work instead of mediocre work. This desire can be applied to all subjects of study. As well as this, pupils who practice with musical instruments can improve their hand-eye coordination. Just like playing sports, children can develop motor skills when playing music. We have found that learning to play pieces of music on a new instrument can be a challenging, but achievable goal. Pupils who master even the smallest goal in music will be able to feel proud of their achievement.
