The Arts

Arts Week July 2021

We've had a wonderfully colourful week, singing rainbow songs with signing, designing plates with the colours of the rainbow and creating Art work based around a colour.


In music, we've been creating performances showcasing our skills on the ukulele, drums and percussion.


We hope you enjoy looking at all the Art week and the musical performances. What wonderful, talented children we have at Bushmead! We are so proud of the work you have all created.

Bushmead paints all the colours of the rainbow!

Each Year Group focused on a different colour and different artists. Every child was asked to make their own marks on a paper plate using a variety of shades and tones. Each plate is different and special, just like every child at our school.
Year 3 and 4 children learnt to sing 'Over the Rainbow' which is played over the top of the photos that show all the wonderful art work achieved through the week.

The Arts

At Bushmead, we believe that the Arts should be central to a well-rounded education and that all children are indeed ‘an artist’. We are well resourced and aim to provide a wide range of opportunities, delivered by both teaching staff at school and external visitors or organisations. We endeavour to provide a vibrant, creative place for pupils to expand and explore their particular interests or skills. In addition, we encourage our pupils to foster an appreciation for the arts around them and develop their confidence in self-expression.


Our choir attended Young Voices in Birmingham - a wonderful event!
