The Arts

THE ARTS AT FOUNDATION STAGE

Children’s creative, expressive and physical development is closely linked with all aspects of their learning. Children should be given opportunities to explore and share their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of: art and design, music, movement, dance, dramatic and role-play activities. Through taking part in a range of well-planned activities, children’s fine and gross motor skills will develop, they will gain confidence in what they can do and this will help build their self-esteem.

THE ARTS AT KEY STAGE 1 AND KEY STAGE 2

This Area of Learning comprises the subjects of Art and Design, Drama and Music.  It provides rich opportunities for developing creativity, allowing children to express their ideas, feelings and interpretations of the world through pictures, sound, drama and dance.

'Naughty' from Matilda the Musical ~ Springfest Concert March 2017

            NAUGHTY

Jack and Jill, went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water, so they say
Their subsequent fall was inevitable
They never stood a chance, they were written that way
Innocent victims of their story

Like Romeo and Juliet
T'was written in the stars before they even met
That love and fate, and a touch of stupidity
Would rob them of their hope of living happily
The endings are often a little bit gory
I wonder why they didn't just change their story?
We're told we have to do what we're told but surely
Sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.

Just because you find that life's not fair it
Doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
Nothing will change.

Even if you're little, you can do a lot, you
Mustn't let a little thing like, 'little' stop you
If you sit around and let them get on top,
you might as well be saying
You think that it's okay
And that's not right!

Cinderella, in the cellar,
Didn't have to do much as far as I could tell.
Her Godmother was two-thirds fairy,
Suddenly her lot, was a lot less scary,
But what if you haven't got a fairy to fix it?
Sometimes you have to make a little bit of mischief.

Just because you find that life's not fair it
Doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
Nothing will change.

Even if you're little, you can do a lot, you
Mustn't let a little thing like, 'little' stop you
If you sit around and let them get on top,
you might as well be saying
You think that it's okay
And that's not right!
And if it's not right!
You have to put it right!

In the slip of a bolt, there's a tiny revolt.
The seeds of a war in the creak of a floorboard.
A storm can begin, with the flap of a wing.
The tiniest mite packs the mightiest sting!
Every day starts with the tick of a clock.
All escapes start with the click of a lock!
If you're stuck in your story and want to get out
You don't have to cry, you don't have to shout!

'Cause if you're little you can do a lot, you
Mustn't let a little thing like, 'little' stop you
If you sit around and let them get on top, you
Won't change a thing!

Just because you find that life's not fair it
Doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it!
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
You might as well be saying
You think that it's okay
And that's not right!
And if its not right!
You have to put it right!

But nobody else is gonna put it right for me
nobody but me is gonna change my story
sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.

Ritchie Remo Hit the Diff Lyrics

Mowing liftin' sowing, baling,

drawing, hauling and buck-er-raking

Backin' stackin' plowin' crashing,

tippin' rappin' tail doors flappin'

Sucking diesel cuttin' trucking,

spreadin' piping double clutching

Spinning slidin' diggin' raking,

rareing tearin' losing winning.

Oh hit the diff and pray

that she goes all the way

When I'm flat to the mat with the party hat

when I'm heading for the tay.

They thought that we were quittin'

Well when the sun went down.

With the flame from the pipe

we drove all night,

'till the fuel it ran out.

Oisin gives us a giggle!!

Oisin in Primary 6 was the winning finalist of the Voice Box Joke Competition held in school. Ten semi finalists took to the stage to read out their joke and although all jokes were hilariously funny, Oisin's was voted as the winning joke. Oisin's entry will now go forward representing Oakgrove Integrated Primary School in the Northern Ireland Voice Box Joke Competition.

Good luck Oisin.
