We enjoy theme days – Harvest Day, our Christmas Art Week, European Language Day – in which we find exciting, creative and practical ways of learning. We have a designated kitchen area for DT and cooking – delicious aromas drifting through school are a regular occurrence!
We offer a variety of musical tuition opportunities including piano and violin. Boreal Owls currently enjoy free weekly guitar lessons with the Oxfordshire County Music Service: Oxfordshire Music Service. We also use the services of the following providers:
Oxfordshire Schools Dance Festival
Each year, around 30 KS2 pupils take part in the Oxfordshire Schools’ Dance Festival at the New Theatre, Oxford, along with over 20 other schools from across Oxfordshire. Each school creates a piece of dance to a chosen piece of music. Following weeks of rehearsal and always a few nerves on the day, our children consistently give a wonderful performance, of which we are always very proud. One pupil has said, “I love the dancing but everything that goes with it is fun too: the make-up, the costumes, and performing at the New Theatre.” Dance forms an important part of our PE & Creative Arts Curriculum.
