The Arts

THE ARTS AT FOUNDATION STAGE

Children’s creative, expressive and physical development is closely linked with all aspects of their learning. Children should be given opportunities to explore and share their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of: art and design, music, movement, dance, dramatic and role-play activities. Through taking part in a range of well-planned activities, children’s fine and gross motor skills will develop, they will gain confidence in what they can do and this will help build their self-esteem.

For further information about The Arts at Foundation Stage from the Northern Ireland Curriculum click here.

THE ARTS AT KEY STAGE 1 AND KEY STAGE 2

This Area of Learning comprises the subjects of Art and Design, Drama and Music.  It provides rich opportunities for developing creativity, allowing children to express their ideas, feelings and interpretations of the world through pictures, sound, drama and dance.

Peaceproms - Disney Medley

 

PEACEPROMS 2017 - Disney Medley Lyrics

Moana: How far I'll go

I’ve been star-ing at the edge of the water,       Long as I can remember,

Never really knowing why.

I wish I could be the perfect daughter,             But I come back to the water

no matter how hard I try.
Ev’ry turn I take,   ev’ry trail I track,   ev’ry path I take,   ev’ry road leads back

To the place I know, where I can-not go, where I long to be.


See the light as it shines on the sea,              It’s blinding,

But no-one knows, how deep it goes.

And it’s seems like it’s calling out to me,       So come find me,

And let me know,

What’s be-yond that line, will I cross that line?

The line where the sky meets the sea,           It calls me,

And no-one knows,                                         how far it goes.

If the wind in my sail on the sea stays be-hind me,    

One day I’ll know,                                         how far I’ll go.

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in ‘till I reach the end and then I’ll start a-gain.

No I won’t leave, I want to try ev’rything, I want to try even though I could fail.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Try ev’rything,           Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Try ev’rything,

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Try ev’rything, Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

Trolls: Get back up Again

Looking up at a sunny sky, so shiny and blue and there's a butterfly
Well, isn't that a super fantastic sign        It's going to be a super fantastic day
Such marvelousness It's gonna bring       got a pocket full of songs that I'm gonna sing

And I'm ready to take on anything           Hooray!
Some super fun surprise around each corner
Just riding on a rainbow, I'm gonna be okay

Hey!
I'm not giving up today                            There's nothing getting in my way
And if you knock knock me over                I will get back up again
If something goes a little wrong                Well you can go ahead and bring it on
'Cause if you knock knock me over, I will get back up again
Whoa oh oh oh, get back up again, whoa oh oh oh oh oh

I'm marching along I got confidence          I'm cooler than a pack of peppermints
And I haven't been this excited since

I can't remember when!

I'm off on this remarkable adventure         Just riding on a rainbow
What if it's all a big mistake                     What if it's more than I can take
No                                                         I can't think that way 'cause I know that
I'm really really really gonna be okay

Hey!
I'm not giving up today                           There's nothing getting in my way
And if you knock knock me over               I will get back up again
If something goes a little wrong               Well you can go ahead and bring it on
'Cause if you knock knock me over,          I will get back up again

Whoa oh oh oh, get back up again,           whoa oh oh oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh, get back up again,           whoa oh oh oh oh oh
And if you knock knock me over, you knock knock me over
I will   get    back    up    again

EARTH SONG


What a-bout sunrise,

What about rain,

What about all the things that you said we were to gain?

What about killing fields.

Is there a time?

What about all the things that you said were yours and mine?

Did you ever stop to notice,  all the blood we’ve shed before?

Did you ever stop to notice,  this crying earth, this weeping shore?

Ah, ah. Ooh, ooh. Ah, ah, Ooh, ooh.

What have we done to the world?      Look what we’ve done.                                                                     

What about all the peace that you pledge your only son?

What a-bout flowering fields.             Is there a time?                                                                              

What about all the dreams that you said were yours and mine?

Did you ever stop to notice,               all the children dead from war?                                                          

Did you ever stop to notice,               this crying earth, this weeping shore?                                                 

Ah, ah. Ooh, ooh. Ah, ah, Ooh, ooh.

I used to dream.

I used to glance beyond the stars.

Now I don’t know where we are, ah but I do, we’ve drifted far.

Ah, ah. Ooh, ooh. Ah, ah, Ooh, ooh. Ah, ah. Ooh, ooh. Ah, ah, Ooh, ooh.

What about us? What about us? What about us? What about us?                                                              

What about us? What about us? What about us? What about us?

Peaceproms - Hairspray Medley Lyrics

Good Morning Baltimore


Oh, oh, oh woke up today           feeling the way I always do

Oh, oh, oh, hungry for some-thing that I can’t eat, then I hear that beat.

That rhythm up-town, starts calling me down,

it’s like a message from high above.

Oh, oh, oh, pulling me out to the smiles and the streets that I love.


Good morning Baltimore,        ev’ry day’s like an open door,

Ev’ry night is a fantasy,          ev’ry sound’s like a symphony.

Good morning Baltimore,       and some day when I take to the floor,

The world’s gonna wake up and see, Baltimore and me.


I love you Baltimore,             ev’ry day’s like an open door

Ev’ry night is a fantasy,         ev’ry sound’s like a symphony.

And I promise Baltimore,       that some day when I take to the floor,

The world’s gonna wake up and see,

gonna wake up and see,

Baltimore and me,              Baltimore and me,        Baltimore and me.

Nicest Kids In Town


So ev’ry afternoon when the clock strikes four,

A crazy bunch of kids crash through that door, yeah,

So they throw off their coats and leave the squares behind,

And then they shake it shake it shake it like they’re losing their minds,

You’ll never see them frown ‘cause they’re the nicest kids in town.


Ooh, ooh, Ooh, ooh, So ev’ry afternoon drop ev’rything,

Who needs to read and write when you can dance and sing.

Forget about your algebra and calculus,

You can always do your homework on the morning bus,

Can’t tell a verb from a noun, They’re the nicest kids in.

..............................................................................................................................................................


You Can’t Stop The Beat


You can’t stop today as it comes speeding down the track,

child! Yesterday is hist’ry and it’s never coming back.

‘Cause tomorrow is a brand new day and it don’t know white from black.

‘Cause the world keeps spinning round and round,

And my heart’s keeping time to the speed of sound,

I was lost ‘till I heard the drums, then I found my way,

‘Cause you can’t stop the beat.

Ever since we first saw the sun no matter what it’s nice to shimmy when the day is done,

And now I’m gonna shake and shimmy it and have some fun to-day.

‘Cause you can’t stop the motion of the ocean or the rain from above

They can try to stop the paradise we’re dreaming of,

But they cannot stop the rhythm of two hearts in love to stay.

‘Cause, you can’t stop the beat.

Oh, oh, oh you can’t stop today as it comes speeding down the track,

child! Yesterday is hist’ry and it’s never coming back.

‘Cause tomorrow is a brand new day and it don’t know white from black.

‘Cause the world keeps spinning round and round,

And my heart’s keeping time to the speed of sound,

I was lost ‘till I heard the drums, then I found my way,

‘Cause you can’t stop the beat.

Ever since we first saw the sun no matter what it’s nice to shimmy when the day is done,

And now I’m gonna shake and shimmy it and have some fun to-day.

‘Cause you can’t stop the motion of the ocean or the rain from above

They can try to stop the paradise we’re dreaming of,

But they cannot stop the rhythm of two hearts in love to stay.

‘Cause you can’t stop the beat.

Ah Ah Ah Ever since we first saw the sun no matter what it’s nice to shimmy when the day is done,

And now I’m gonna shake and shimmy it and have some fun to-day.

You can’t stop the motion of the ocean or the rain from above

They can try to stop the paradise we’re dreaming of,

But they can-not stop the rhythm of two hearts in love to stay.

You can’t stop the beat, You can’t stop the beat, You can’t stop the beat.

My baby’s always dancin’       And it wouldn’t be a bad thing

We spent the night in Frisco   At every kind of disco

From that night I kissed our love goodbye

Don’t blame it on the sunshine    Don’t blame it on the moonlight

Don’t blame it on good times      Blame it on the boogie

Don’t you blame it on sunshine   Don’t blame it on moonlight

Don’t blame it on good time       Blame it on the boogie

Rather Be – Clean Bandit

We’re a thousand miles from comfort,

We have travelled land and sea,

But as long as you are with me,

There’s no place I’d rather be.

With ev’ry step we take, Kyoto to the Bay,

Strolling so casu’lly,

We’re diff’rent and the same, gave you another name,

Switch off the batteries.

If you gave me a chance I would take it,

It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it,

Know with all of your heart you can’t shame me,

When I am with you there’s no place I’d rather be.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no place I’d rather be,

No, no, no, no, no, no, no place I’d rather be,

No, no, no, no, no, no, no place I’d rather be,

When I am with you there’s no place I’d rather be.

Chained To The Rhythm – Katy Perry

Are we crazy? Living our lives through a lens,

Trapped in our white picket fence, like ornaments.

So comf’table we’re living in a bubble, bubble,

So comf’table we cannot see the trouble, trouble.

Dance, dance, dance dance all day long.

Dance dance dance get on your feet now.

Now! Yeah, we think we’re free,

Think, why can’t we see.

We’re all chained to the rhythm, to the rhythm, to the rhythm,

Dance, dance, dance dance all day long.

Turn it up keep it on repeat,

On Top Of The World – Imagine Dragons

If you love somebody,

Better tell them while they’re here ‘cause,

They may just run a-way from you.

You’ll never know quite when well,

There again it just depends on,

How long a time is left for you.

I’ve had the highest mountains,

I’ve had the deepest rivers,

You can have it all but life keeps moving.

I take it in but don’t look down,

‘Cause I’m on top of the world eh,

I’m on top of the world eh,

Been waiting on this for a while now,

Paying my dues to the dirt.

I’ve been waiting to smile eh,

Been holding it in for a while eh,

Take you with me if I can,

Been dreaming of this since a child.

And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down

And it’s a long way up when you hit the ground,

But get up now, get up, Get up now.

And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down

And it’s a long way up when you hit the ground,

But get up now, get up,

Get up now.

‘Cause I’m on top of the world eh,

I’m on top of the world eh,

Been waiting on this for a while now,

Paying my dues to the dirt.

I’ve been waiting to smile eh,

Been holding it in for a while eh,

Take you with me if I can,

Been dreaming of this since a child.

I’m on top of the world.
