Music lessons are engaging, active and inspire pupils from all abilities and backgrounds to participate in the curriculum. We have a cross-curricular approach to the teaching of music.
Music skills are built up from years 3-6 using the Kapow scheme where progression throughout the units of work reinforces the interrelated dimensions of music. New learning always starts with the foundation of pulse, rhythm and pitch adding new dimensions as they progress (dynamics, tempo, timbre, structure, texture and notation).
Music plays a very important role in community cohesion. Children have attended Young Voices at the O2 for the past six years. We have a singing club called Sing Out! This group comprises Years 4 to 6, and they perform a variety of musical genres.
The whole school takes part in our Christmas performance through acting and songs in St Mildreds Church.
