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

Firstly, they measured and cut the black supporting beams. They then positioned them to their own design and painted a range of colours in the style of the Swiss artist Paul Klee.

Tints of dinosaurs

image image image image Year 3 have been adding tints and shades to their artwork and have created abstract paintings of dinosaurs which is the topic they are covering this term. By adding white to the base colour, paler tints have been created. By adding black to the base colour, shades are created. The children learnt that only a small amount of black was required to change the shading.
