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

Como te llamas?

Children in Reception A have learnt how to ask "what is your name?" in Spanish and also answer, "mi name is...". They have decorated leaves, printed their hands and written "Me llamo..." and their names. If you would like to practice at home with them, search in YouTube "Andy and Rosie, Como te llamas?" And you will find the song that they have learnt. The video that follows is also about the same theme with puppet Alicia, with whom they are also familiar. Enjoy!

Frame Building

4C continued building their sculptures with mod roc today. First they had to measure, cut and stick the frames together. Each sculpture, although similar at first glance, incorporates a different theme that the children chose from school objects. Monet paintings were also being completed so it was a very busy afternoon. Thank you to all the DT and Leading Artists that helped set up the lesson this afternoon.

RC Pottery

RC glazed their handprints that they made last week. Now they are in the kiln being fired for next week. Some children had a go at mosaic whilst others had a go on the potters wheel.
