We aim to produce confidence in all areas of music. All children are encouraged to perform as musicians. We have a very enthusiastic choir. Instrumentalists have an important part to play in school assemblies and concerts. Children also have an assembly per week, dedicated to singing songs that are relevant to the season and/or current celebrations. In some classrooms, to assist the immersive environment, music is played as a background to the children’s learning.
Children also learn to listen to music from a variety of traditions, and to discuss and evaluate what they have heard. They are also introduced to creative composition, both in words, symbols and music.
We have a music teacher teach a range of the classes on a Friday afternoon, she follows the schools curriculum and she also teaches the year two children to play the recorder.
