Art and Culture


In Year 5 we are committed to supporting pupils in increasing their cultural capital. Every day we engage with a variety of music, poetry and art from the world's most famous artists. Find out about who we have been studying this year below:

Arts and Culture - Music

We listen to music from great composers and discuss a number of aspects of these pieces:


  • Interpreting the composer's intentionality and the meaning behind the music.
  • Discussing our own emotional reaction to the music.
  • Using musical vocabulary to describe the different facets of the music
  • Using broader vocabulary to describe the music and discuss links with other art we have studied.

Sergei Prokofiev, Dance of the Knights

Carl Orff, Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi

Camille Saint Saens, Danse Macabre

Johann Strauss, On the Beautiful Blue Danube

Debussy, Reflets d'un L'eau

Hande, Water Music

Arts and Culture - Paintings, Photographs and Architecture
