On Tuesday 7th March we welcomed parents to a workshop covering the curriculum of the Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme and the DCIS Instrumental Programme. For those parents who would like to view the presentation, please click here.
An overview of the topics presented included at the workshop included:
- Why learn through the NAE-Juilliard Performing Arts Programme?
- What will my child learn?
- How will my child learn?
- What does the Learner Profile address?
- What opportunities exist at Dover Court to extend my child’s learning?
- What are these concerts/mini productions exactly?
- How can my child participate in these events?
The ways in which the nine ‘Learner Ambitions’ framework is delivered in both the classroom and extra-curricular activities were also explained, with parents gaining insight into one of the 12 core works in a lesson demonstration.
In this example, parents saw how the following three disciplines of the ‘Learner Ambitions’ were made accessible:
- To be able to think and understand in patterns (Perception and Performing)
- To be able to be creative (Creativity and Expression)
- To be able to work with others to meet goals (Collaboration)
Aspects of the DCIS Instrumental Programme was also presented, with parents given the opportunity to ask questions over a range of musical topics.
