Arts at Molehill

Welcome to the Molehill Primary Academy arts page. As the famous composer Sir Simon Rattle once said, “The arts are like your backbone. You may be able to survive without your backbone but what quality of life would  you have?”

At Molehill, we firmly believe that the Arts are a vital part of a child’s education and integral to the development of well-rounded, balanced individuals. The Arts offer children the scope for personal expression, enjoyment, creative action, imagination and emotional response.

On this page you will find information about the curriculum, examples of what the children have been up to in school and the latest news from our Arts Council. 

NEW FOR 2020:

Due to the ongoing pandemic and current restrictions on visitors, we are unable to invite parents into school as we have done in the past to celebrate the children’s learning. However, this does not mean you can’t see what they have been up to. Head over to our ONLINE GALLERY to see what the children have been up to so far this year.

Here is an example of some of the fantastic work being completed in school. These fantastics paintings were completed by our very talented year 6 group.

Autumn 2019:  

On Thursday 21st November, Molehill Primary Academy’s amazing Christmas Choir attended the Christmas lights switch on in Maidstone Town Centre. After weeks of rehearsing their moment in the spotlight came as they took to the stage to sing a variety of Christmas classics. We are so proud of all their hard work and the fabulous performance they gave.

On Monday 11th November, we as a school remembered! As well as holding our traditional Remembrance Day assembly, we also held a poppy making workshop at lunchtime and within classes, children created a variety of poppy related art for out display in the school entrance. We hope you agree that it looks amazing.
