The Arts at Elms Farm
Children at Elms Farm love the arts, it is their chance to show off their creativity and inject some personality into their work. The Arts are celebrated well throughout school and children are given ample opportunity to partake in art, music and drama activities.
Parents have been very involved with the arts at Elms Farm through parent workshops, creating and helping with art projects at home and coming to see class and school assemblies.
Children partake in weekly art and music sessions based around their current ILP topics per year group and drama sessions are built into English sessions. Children are given the opportunity to develop their skills across each year group and phase and put this into practice.
Children enjoy a range of taught music sessions by our music specialists who develop the children's music skills in brass, keyboard lessons and a choir.
We are delighted to announce that we are on the Artsmark journey this year at Elms Farm. We are currently working towards gaining Artsmark award for the school. Over the next year we are looking to enhance and enrich our arts provision at Elms Farm including parent workshops, staff CPD, arts ambassadors and lots of exciting projects involving other schools and local Birmingham venues such as IKON gallery.
