Our children learn about music and experience music in many areas of school life. Music classroom lessons are taught through music skills which can be downloaded from the resource list on the left. The children learn about performing music, listening to music and gaining knowledge and understanding of music.
Hymns are sung daily during assembly and Mrs Sears leads hymn practice every Wednesday afternoon. A wide range of music is played while the children enter and leave assembly. Songs are also learnt for plays that are performed throughout the year (Infants -Autumn term, Lower Juniors - Spring term and Upper Juniors - Summer term). Most classes have tidying up music in their classrooms and getting ready for PE music.
