Music

We deliver music across Key Stages 1 and 2 as well as within the EYFS weekly. We give the children opportunities to listen and appraise quality music across a range of genres and historical composers, learn to use their voices to sing in a variety of styles and to explore and understand the elements needed to compose their own music.

All children sing daily as part of the day to day life of the school. Children in reception learn to use percussion instruments. Children in Key Stage 1 advance to tuned percussion and ukulele playing.  Year 3 children learn the cello or recorder and Children in Year 4 learn a brass instrument.  Children in Year 3 and 4 have a weekly choir practice with a specialist singing teacher and often sing in concerts and special events both within and outside of school.
