Music is led on Monday afternoons by our appointed music specialist Mr Burton. all pupils from Year1-Year 6 will access this specialist training weekly; with KS1 having 30 minutes and KS2 45 minutes. During these lessons pupils are taught to sing and play musically with confidence.Our music curriculum engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talents as musicians, increasing their self confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
Mr Burton will also be providing additional teaching and enrichment for a school choir from September 2016. This will be during lunchtimes on Mondays for30 minutes.
We have even performed to each other in school with the help of Mr Burton! Have a look at our performance photos!
To ensure we provide a rich, varied and exciting music curriculum we work with specialist teachers to ensure at least one year group has the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument.
We are currently working with Nottingham Music Hub to provide 1 hour of guitar lessons for years 4 & 5 on alternate weeks. Mr Marshall teaches us all the skills to play the guitar.
Last year we started to provide additional guitar sessions after school with Mr. Bickerstaffe from True Music. This has been very popular and the children are making great progress. We will be continued to provide additional guitar (and possibly ukulele) sessions after school throughout the year2015-2016.
