Music is a specialist subject taught by a full-time music specialist in a fully equipped music room. Starting right down at the bottom of the school with nursery, music lessons are taught on a fortnightly basis to every child up to Year 6. Key stage 2 lessons are an hour long, while Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 get half hour lessons.

Music lessons cover a broad range of skills – most of which are transferable:

  • Voice projection, articulation, solo singing
  • Listening and appraising
  • Developing memory and “thinking” voice
  • Sharing and taking turns
  • Composing and improvising
  • Reading and writing music
  • Group ensemble work
  • Performing in front of class/school/parents

RB Sunflowers

Bright coloured flowers were the theme in Reception this morning. Everyone mixed red and yellow to make orange petals on their brand new paint pallets.

Bow Arts Celebration

Today some Year 3 children, accompanied by three Year 6 Leading Artists, walked all the way to Sarah Bonnell to take part in the Bow Arts Consortium Celebration event. They participated in a weaving workshop, each making their own lollipop sculpture which they added to the main display at the exhibition. One of the main exhibits was the collection of pirate flags made by the children when they were in Year 2. 

Clay Owls

2B made owls using clay today. They drew round their own hands to make the outline before texturing and drawing the face. Then they used 'slip' to stick the break on.
