St. Peter's Arts Festival
St Peter’s Arts Festival 2022 ‘Together’
t St Peter’s, we are proud of our arts-rich curriculum and the many opportunities our children have to take part in culture and creativity across our school. We had our first Arts Festival last week to celebrate the arts and being together again as a school community.
The Festival was a wonderful two days, full of creativity and fun, and focused on the themes of friendship, hope, self-belief and working together. All year groups took part in a range of dance, drama and visual arts activities and performed to one another in showcases throughout the two days. We did have to make a few changes to our original plans, and we will try to reorganise some of the cancelled events as soon as possible, but we did have many fantastic events that did go ahead. We welcomed some of our parents/carers to take part in a dance workshop alongside the Years 3 and 4 Elite Dancers, it was a great experience and we hope to have more parents/carers workshops in the future.
Congratulations to the Years 3 and 4 St Peter’s Performers, who had their first performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, they really impressed us with their confidence and enthusiasm! The Years 5 and 6 St Peter’s Performers presented an energetic and very humorous ensemble performance about Romans.
Our young Arts Leaders from Years 4, 5 and 6 played really important roles throughout the Festival, they helped to lead and support others during the workshops and they even organised and led their own activities during their lunch breaks too! They were positive, imaginative and supportive and fantastic ambassadors for the Arts - well done to everybody involved!
