WE ARE A MUSICAL FUTURES CHAMPION SCHOOL!
Our school believes that Music should be fully embedded in every aspect of school life. Our aspiration is that every child adopts a lifelong appreciation of music.
It is our vision that music lessons give the opportunity for children to become real musicians and provide a creative outlet. The children participate in singing, playing instruments, composing, and listening to live and recorded music.
We provide our children with many opportunities to perform in front of an audience, reflect upon and evaluate their work.
|Wider Opportunities/Musical Futures
Wider Opps Music is taught ‘in-house’ by Mr Wilson. All children from years 1-6 have the opportunity to learn Ukulele, Recorder and Glockenspiel through our bespoke ‘Primary Futures’ Scheme based on the principles of Musical Futures. Years 5 and 6 also receive wider opps guitar. These schemes are supplemented with pitched and unpitched percussion to create multi instrument performances as a class.
How we Stretch and Challenge pupils in Music
Pupils follow a programme of study each academic year, which includes performing, composing and listening tasks. We encourage all pupils to maximise their musical potential in all of these areas, both inside and outside of the classroom. Through focusing on musical elements in lessons and switching elemental timbre on the fly, pupils develop an intrinsic understanding of keywords and improvisation.
