Welcome to the Arts' Team!

 

At St. Thomas’ Primary School we believe that the Arts encompass a wide range of

subject areas and disciplines including Music, Dance, Drama, Art and Design, Visual Arts and Design and Technology. Arts at our school means providing our pupils not only with the opportunity to learn about and participate in each of these areas, but also providing them with the platform from which to be creative, to express themselves, find success and share these experiences, talents and abilities through performance.

The 'Arts' Policy

The progression in Art and Design across St Thomas.

The progression in Design and Technology across St Thomas

At St Thomas we follow the Charanga music scheme. This enables us to show progression from Reception to Year 6. 

Years 1 and 2 took part in a DT competition where we had to design and create our own cars in teams. The winning car had to travel in a straight line the furthest. Congratulations to 2SE who became first!

 

The gifted and talented Year 5 children were chosen to participate in the Manchester Easter 1000 cross project. This was a competition for pupils to express their creativity based on the Easter story and the life of Jesus.  The crosses were a symbol of hope due to Jesus' miraculous resurrection as well as promoting hope for the homeless and refugees within the city of Manchester.

 

Our fantastic crosses!

On Saturday 8th April, Miss Wood and 2 of the pupils who created the crosses with their families attended the Manchester Passion play.

Unfortunately we didn't win but we were proud to display our crosses at the football museum. We explained how our crosses demonstrated the value of hope.
