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

Art Room is up and running!

For the last two weeks children from across the school have been enjoying the brand new art room and the fantastic space it has provided. Monet, Vermeer and Leonardo da Vinci have all had a mention, as well as a visit from a present day artist from Bow Arts who is showing children from Years 3, 4 and 5 different printing techniques. 

Year six specialist subjects project

Year six children had the opportunity to chose a specialist subject for the Summer term. They have worked on different art, music, animation,drama and Spanish projects and they shared their hard work with the whole year group, year six teachers and teaching assistants yesterday. We all learnt about Mexico, making clay pots, Frankenstein and Growth mindset. It was a really happy occasion that included traditional Mexican dance and singing.
