Summer Term

During our review activities, members of the Expressive Arts Pupil Voice Group and AoLE Leader monitored Expressive Arts in LPS by listening to learners, speaking to staff, devising a staff questionnaire, looking at the LPS website and looking at pupil’s work. 


We identified the following strengths related to our Action Plan:


The teaching and learning of Expressive Arts continues to be excellently linked to the LPS New Curriculum topics. All children in LPS enjoy carrying out creative activities and are continuing to develop skills, knowledge, and imagination whilst carrying out Expressive Arts. This has been recognised during our Summer Term Estyn Inspection, where inspectors stated 'pupils make suitable progress in developing their creative skills.' Art and craft continues to be a strong area in the LPS Expressive Arts AoLE. The whole school took part in a whole school Platinum Jubilee Project to create images of Queen Elizabeth II. All children enjoy art and are confident taking part in art activities. This was highlighted by Estyn, who stated that pupils 'engage enthusiastically with art and craft activities and talk with excitement about their work.'  


All children took part in our summer concerts which were a massive success. The pupils developed their drama skills by acting and performing their lines incredibly! Our superb summer concerts gave the children the opportunities to enhance their verbal and non-verbal expressions. They also established many other important drama skills such as communication, listening, observing, rehearsing and performing. 


All children have developed their awareness of different artists and musicians from Wales. All children studied the Welsh artist Catrin Williams as part of our St David's Day Eisteddfod activities and they completed outstanding pieces of artwork which can be viewed here, here and here. Pupils in Year 1 worked in the style of Welsh artist Rhiannon Roberts and created some beautiful, colourful pieces of work. Pupils in Year 3 studied the Welsh artist Chris Chalk and completed superb pieces of artwork. Pupils in Year 5 studied the work of Josef Herman and they created artwork using charcoal. Pupils in Year 6 worked in the style of Welsh artist Will Evans and completed some excellent artwork. Pupils in Year 1 enjoyed learning about and dancing to the Welsh band Stereophonics and Welsh superstar Tom Jones.
