Music

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

Roman Mosaics

Year 3 looked at how ancient mosaics were constructed and then started to produce their own symmetrical designs. image image image image image image image image image image

Henry Moore sketches

Year five used examples of Henry Moore's WWII London Underground drawings to base their own sketches on. Given only a few minutes to concentrate upon the body form and shapes made by other children, everyone drew without starting with an outline. The children will be discussing how to turn their drawings into 3D sculptures next week. image image image image image image image
