Music is taught by specialist teachers across Key Stage 2. Children use their voices expressively and creatively, play instruments, listen constructively, experiment with sounds, play and perform, improvise and compose, use notations and develop an understanding of the history of music. Clubs are also run to develop musical knowledge even further.
Children in years three, four and five are taught to play recorders, guitars, woodwind and brass instruments by specialist music teachers..Alongside this, they develop the skill of reading and writing sheet music, allowing themselves to compose and perform with confidence.
Throughout the year, the children have the opportunity to take part in a range of performances for singing and playing their instrument. We collaborate with other primary and secondary schools for concerts.
To celebrate their talents the children perform a ‘Musical Extravaganza’ at the end of the year. This involves each group performing with their specific instrument in front of their family and singing songs as a class and whole school choir. This is a great opportunity for children to show what they can do and be proud of their achievements
