Music

Whole class music lessons

Each year group teaches music using resources from Music Express, which is a complete scheme for teaching music, aimed at providing children with engaging music activities which are simple, straightforward and fun.


Choir

The school choir meets once a week and involves children from Years 3 to Year 6. The choir performs at different venues throughout the year. These include the local church, the nursing home and at school events. The choir have also performed at charity concerts within the community. Our grandest performance was at the Genting Arena - Young Voices 2016. Photos below.


Peripatetic lessons

In Key Stage 2 the children have the opportunity to take up an instrument. Lessons are taught by peripatetic teachers.. Children are currently able to take lessons in:


                           Flute, clarinet              Mrs Anderson

                           Guitar                          Mr Walker

                           Violin, viola, cello        Mrs Allen


The children have lessons for 20 minutes in small groups, with no more than four children in each. If you are interested in your child taking lessons please enquire at the school office for details and prices (see below).


K2M Project

All Year 3 pupils are now given the opportunity to take home a violin as part of this successful approach to teaching music.

A specialist teacher spends 1 hour per week teaching the whole class, giving instructions for the children to practise in between at home.

Each class will receive one term’s worth of specialist tuition and at the end of their tuition, there is a performance for parents.
