Creative & Performing Arts

A Creative Hub to Shape Students' Artistic and Aesthetic Sensibilities

Our classes in music, art, computing, languages, PE and others are carefully planned to match each year group’s STEAM projects wherever possible. They also embrace our Positive Education ethos and make meaningful links with moral, social and cultural studies objectives.

Students are taught to appreciate art and design from different periods, created by famous composers, engineers, linguists and sporting heroes. This enhances their knowledge of form, texture, pitch, tone, coding and robotics, pronunciation and composition, and timing and precision.

These skills are further built upon in ECAs, including our Performing Arts elective that prepares students for the annual musical performance. Stimulating displays in classrooms and corridors result in widespread appreciation of their achievements and efforts throughout the year.

Music

There is something for everyone in Sunmarke’s music department. Our specialist music teachers ignite every child’s passion for music, be they a grade 7 pianist or an enthusiast in different musical genres.

Students are encouraged to perform as much as possible: in assemblies, concerts, school productions – our school is their stage!

Performances

There are many opportunities for students to shine on stage. Each year, Primary steals the limelight in shows and performances:

  • Winter Perfomances: Year 1 and 2 students perform a selection of songs, poems and dances reflecting their first term’s learning journey.
  • Snowmarke: Selected students from Years 3-6 showcase their musical and dance talent in a concert-style performance.
  • Assemblies: Classes present character strength-based assemblies for parents
  • Summer showcases: Year 3 and 4 students show off their talents by taking us on a musical journey through their learning.
  • Primary Musical: Students from Years 5 and 6 have the option to take part in our annual production each summer term. Recent productions include Beauty & The Beast and Peter Pan.
