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.

Communities in Dialogue Concert - Put a Little Love in Your Heart

Put A Little Love In Your Heart

Think of your fellow man             Lend him a helping hand

Put a little love in your heart

You see it's getting late      Oh, please don't hesitate

Put a little love in your heart

And the world           will be a better place

And the world           will be a better place

For you    and me     You just wait      and see

Another day goes by        Still the children cry

Put a little love in your heart

If you want the world to know  We won't let hatred grow

Put a little love in your heart

And the world           will be a better place

And the world           will be a better place

For you   and me      you just wait    and see

Take a good look around      And if you're looking down

Put a little love in your heart

I hope when you decide      Kindness will be your guide

Put a little love in your heart

And the world           will be a better place

And the world           will be a better place

For you     and me     you just wait         and see

Put a little love in your heart x8

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.
