Art
At Grange Community Nursery and Primary School, we value Art as a way for our children to express their own creativity.
Creative writing, drama and poetry are taught through English and topics. Art is taught within topics. Art is very important to us at Grange Community Nursery and Primary School.
We teach Art with a specific artist focus. Children are given the opportunity to practise, develop and embed their art skills through lessons. We encourage children to fulfil their artistic talents through extra- curricular activities and regional competitions.
We display children’s artwork throughout school. Art is extremely important to us at Grange and we value the creativity it allows all children to express.
For every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain and artist once we grow up.” – Pablo Picasso’ 

Wider Opportunities/Music

‘At Grange Community Nursery and Primary School, we value Music as a way for our children to express their own creativity.
 At Grange, our children learn to play an instrument. Alongside this, peripatetic music lessons are offered – including drums, ukulele and brass instruments.
Music is at the heart of Grange Community Nursery and Primary School and our fantastic school choir will be performing at Chester Cathedral this Christmas.
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything” –  Plato‘ 

Extra-curricular activities also give our children the opportunity to develop the Arts outside of the curriculum. Drama, music, creative writing are all included.
