Class music lessons include singing, listening to music, appraising, composing and performing.
Children have many opportunities to create music using the school's large collection of percussion instruments and keyboards, as well as several pieces of music software in the ICT suite. Teachers often make use of their own musical interests or expertise in their lessons.
We have a busy Singing Club and a school orchestra for children who are the equivalent of grade 1 ability.
For those children wishing to learn an instrument, the school provides brass, wind, guitar and strings (at a charge), and pupils are also welcome to join a lunchtime recorder group.
Some year groups may benefit from the County Music Service ‘Wider Opportunities Scheme’, where children have a wind/brass instrument for a year and take part in weekly class tuition.
We try to provide many opportunities for the children to perform within school and the local community.
Our Key Stage 2 pupils compete annually in our House Singing competition.
