Teaching of Music
Music is an extremely important part of our school curriculum and takes place with our Music Lead Daniel every Tuesday morning. Although Music is directly taught on a weekly basis Music encompasses all sorts of learning and is embedded throughout our school structure. This can be in the form of singing assemblies, nativity productions and performances.
Children from Nursery through to Year Two have explicit teaching each Tuesday. During these lessons children explore instruments, look at Musicians and learn vocabulary focused around Music.
Extra Curricular Opportunities
Our music club takes place every Tuesday lunchtime in our outdoor music area. Children in Reception, Year One and Year Teo have the opportunity to attend if they wish.
