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
What an amazing performance at the Kenneth More Theatre. Well done to everyone. The children were very impressive. Learning all those lines and delivering them so clearly and articulately on stage is some achievement. The dancing at the ball was spectacular and the audience were completely transfixed by how the tragic ending unfolded.
Thank you to Ms Saddington and Ms Muhammad for their ideas and for making it happen.
