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 Day 1

Children from Years 3 and 6 worked together with Bow Artist, Victoria Burgher, to draw and sculpt portraits. The Children spent the morning talking about what makes a portrait and what makes a bust. Having drawn each other using pastels, the children wrote down their thoughts about the process and discussed the differences between their 2D work and how they could next make a 3D mask out of terracotta clay. They then set to work rolling, adding and shaping the clay for their mask, being as creative as possible. Next week they will attempt a clay bust.

Rubbish Art

6D started their at project by making a canvas out of old paper. Next week they will be painting upon the surface and hoping the different textures will add different aspects and talking points within the class. The year group are currently reading 'Trash' as part of their autumn project.
