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

Roald Dahl rehearsals in full swing! 

Year three pupils have started their rehearsals for Goldilocks and Jack and the Beanstalk. Children in 3A and 3B have already learned some of their lines at home and were very professional during their rehearsal. Pupils have been using physical oracy skills to think about their character attributes. 

Arts Award

Children from Years 3, 4 and 5 received their Arts Award certificates today. Each child took part in a printing project run by Bow Arts at the end of last year. Every young artist worked extremely hard to complete their own portfolio which resulted in all entries achieving Arts Award Explore. Mrs Reuben presented the certificates in Sandringham Central.
