Music, Dance, Drama and Art
All pupils at Lynch Hill School are exposed to a diverse range of art and cultural activities. Curricular music lessons provide children with the opportunity to sing, play instruments, compose, improvise, and develop listening skills. In KS1, children explore a wide range of tuned and un-tuned percussion instruments while in KS2, children learn to play the Djembe drums and a brass instrument. Some children may choose to take part in extra-curricular instrumental tuition. We offer brass, string, woodwind, guitar, piano and singing lessons, all taught by professional musicians from the Slough Music Service. The choir and brass band practice on a weekly basis and perform in concerts and festivals, both in and out of school, throughout the year. Gifted and talented music projects and Creative Learning projects also enable some pupils to enjoy musical experiences with children from primary schools across Slough and work with external practitioners.
Dance, drama and art are an integral part of the curriculum at Lynch Hill. Many opportunities to further practice these subjects are offered in the form of after-school clubs, all linking to the Children’s University Scheme. The annual school Arts Festival provides the perfect opportunity to showcase the outstanding level of art produced by the pupils. Parents can also encourage and share in their children’s artistic talents during year group learning presentations and end of term assemblies.
