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

Afrikids visits Sandringham

Two members of the Afrikids charity have visited Sandringham this week. They have delivered an assembly for years three and six and Paul Apowida has delivered four workshops with Mr Pearmain for all the year three children. He has taught them some African painting techniques and they have produced beautiful paintings. Paul has also signed his auto biography "Spirit Boy" which tells his amazing story and explains the fantastic work of Afrikids. We have raised £638.34 which will go entirely to Afrikids and will enable many Ghanaian children to access education. A full school uniform costs £2 in Ghana! Thank-you on behalf of the school staff, Afrikids and the Ghanaian children supported by this organisation for your support and involvement.
