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

Forest people

Year 2 turned up in High Beach today with load of activities and a real desire to learn what they could from Epping Forest. First they went for a walk looking at the trees, rotten wood, soil, ponds, fungi and many other things. It was a bit cold but nobody complained apart from the adults.

Shakespeare Performance 

The final rehearsals for last nights performance of Hamlet at Stratford Circus went really well.  First, the Year 5's completed a technical rehearsal with both Mrs Saddington-Adams, the stage manager and the technical team directed whilst they set up the lights and sound. Then, the children successfully completed a full run through of the performance which started at 7pm. The performance went like a dream. Sandringham were the third act on. Despite some nerves, the children put in their best performance yet. They listened to everything Mrs Saddington-Adams and the Stage Manager told them and performed flawlessly.
