Music

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

Debden – Mr Hilaire Entertains

After a rather wet and muddy day, Mr Hilaire and his family came to entertain the campers at Debden. For three hours he entertained the children with games, jokes and dance offs, before finally packing his microphone back into it's box in time for the hot chocolate and biscuits. Previously the children had played team games around the field until the rain forced everyone to eat lunch under the cover of the big white tent.
