Music

Pupils participate in a range of musical activities, which include singing, composing and performing.  All teachers integrate music into their topic if possible, as well as teaching a weekly lesson dedicated to musical learning.

Key Stage 1 pupils develop their musical skills through the regular use of tuned and percussion instruments. They listen to and discuss a variety of styles of music.

All Year 3 pupils learn to play the recorder; beginning to read music and performing to audiences.  Year 4 pupils all learn the violin with some pupils  increasing their skills, by playing cellos. Pupils are offered the opportunity to take individual lessons to learn to play the violin or keyboard.
