Arts & Communication

Music and Art are the two main subjects in Arts and communication. However, it also encompasses Drama, Creative Writing, Reading, Modern Foreign Language, Awe and Wonder and Oracy.  


Here you will find our rationale, how we implement Arts and Communication in school and the benefits to our children.  Arts and Communication is currently under review.


At Our Lady of Lourdes, we seek to create a unique environment that enables children to access Arts and Communication by  blurring the lines between subjects as well as immersing children into a subjects entirety.  This encourages children and staff to journey beyond their expectations as they learn to enjoy and express themselves through different medias in a safe environment that builds self-esteem and opens horizons. 




We aim to make music an engaging, enriching and exciting experience for our children.  We enable children to paticipate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build a range of skills and understanding in musicality. We intend to nurture and develop children's confidence to express themselves through responding to a range of genres. Through singing songs and performing, children learn about the structure and organisation of music and we teach them to listen and to appreciate different genres. Children also develop descriptive language skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent different feelings, emotions and narratives. We teach technical vocabulary such as volume, pitch, beat and rhythm and encourage children to discuss music using these terms.


We had a Music Enrichment week which was recognised in the local newspaper. Click here to find out what we got up to!


We have introduced Chranga which is being implemented across the school. The Charanga scheme of work is used from Year 1 - 6 to ensure a wide exposure to different genres of music, with lots of practical opportunities to explore and develop as musicians and singers.
