Music & Arts

mediumAt Frederick Nattrass Primary Academy we value the performing arts and it is an integral part of our curriculum.

Entitlement for all

Every child from nursery to Year 6 will be given the opportunity, and encouraged to perform in a musical theatre production at Christmas.

Every child from Year 1 to Year 6 will be given the opportunity, and encouraged to take part in a class assembly at least twice a year.

We work closely with Apollo Arts to deliver high quality music teaching to all children from Year 2 to Year 6. They will learn about musical notation, playing an instrument, rhythm and performing.

Children from Foundation Stage and Year 1experience music as part of their daily lessons.

All Year 6 children take part in a musical theatre performance at the end of the year.

Every child from Reception to Year 6 visits the theatre in December to see a pantomime

By the time they leave our school, every child will have visited the theatre to see a production of a book they are studying (in 2013 we saw Goodnight Mr Tom)

Encouraging excellence

Year 5 and Year 6 pupils have the opportunity to take part in a production of a Shakespeare play at a local theatre.

We have a school choir that practice with Apollo Arts once a week - they perform at local events.

In October our Year 5 class performed 'Romeo and Juliet' on the stage at Middlesbrough Theatre as part of the Shaekespeare Schools' Festival. Here they are in a rehearsal...

Also in October the School Choir performed with other choirs in a Snappy Roald Dahl event, performing to an audience at North Shore Academy...
