Music is a very important part of the curriculum in the school.
Children have many opportunities for singing. We have weekly hymn practices and usually sing in assemblies. There is a KS2 choir, the Nativity performance for Reception and KS1, an Easter Concert for Years 3 and 4 and a Summer show for Years 5 and 6. An external specialist teacher supports the teaching of singing.
In class, teachers follow the ‘Sound of Music’ scheme of work which gives children opportunities to explore pitch, rhythm and instrumental playing. In addition , Years 5 and 6 learn an instrument as part of their ‘Band’ project taught by external teachers.
Children are also encouraged to listen to quality music of many styles, often on a cross-curricular basis.
