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

Arts Award

Sandringham welcomed Ella Hempsted from the Bow Arts Consortium yesterday. Ella specialises in 3D, sculptural art work, exploring materials such as mod-roc, foam, wire and recycled items. Year 3 and 6 children will be working together over the next 3 weeks as part of their Arts Award project to discover different aspects of 3D sculpture. In the first session the children collaborated and produced castings using different materials such as foam, plaster and Jesmonite.

Chinese students join our Spanish lesson

We have welcomed 40 Chinese students at Sandringham today. They have visited us to get to know how we work in an outstanding London school. A group of these children have researched about traditional Spanish festivals with some year six pupils. They have created posters in English and Mandarin and presented their work to the whole group.
