Music

 

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:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the interrelated dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations

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:

  • woodwind instruments (clarinet / flute/saxophone)
  • brass instruments (trumpet / tenor horn)
  • guitar
  • percussion (drums)

 

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.
