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.
In class, teachers follow the ‘Charanga' scheme of work which gives children opportunities to explore pitch, rhythm and instrumental playing. In addition , Year 4 learn recorders, Years 5 and 6 learn a woodwind or brass instrument taught by external teachers.
Children are also encouraged to listen to quality music of many styles, often on a cross-curricular basis.
