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

Year 6 Showcase

Year 6 proudly showed off their creative talents to the whole of Year 5 and their teachers this afternoon. Each Year 5 class spent time in Art, Drama, Animation, Spanish and Music. They viewed displays, listened to music and speeches, watched animations and asked questions relevent to each subject as they themselves will be choosing topics in less than a years time.

3B and 4B Glaze and Paint

Year 3 glazed tiles they had made on their last visit to the Art Room. They painted plain backgrounds and then added colourful repetitive patterns after looking at a range of costume and fabric from all over Africa. Year 4 continued contrasting extreme environments in a style not too dissimilar to that of Nicholas Bott. They marked out the features of mountains, rivers and cities with crayons before using watercolour.
