We teach the National Curriculum for Music using our own scheme of work which includes materials from Charanga, Music Express online, Sing up! and a range of other music sources. Throughout KS2 children develop the ability to play the glockenspiel as well as being encouraged to have a go at another instrument through our links with Lancashire Music Service.
As the national curriculum, we aim to ensure that all pupils:
We enjoy a wide range of music making in our school from Christmas productions to weekly music activities. Year 2 and Year 5 take part each year in the local Lancaster and District Singing Festival and the choir enjoy their annual trip to Young Voices at the MEN.
Pupils in KS2 have the chance to learn how to play:
We have a well established choir, who sing in a variety of different festivals and concerts along with a school band.
All children in KS2 learn how to play the glockenspiel - starting with a few notes moving on to being able to accompany simple melodies.
