Music is a key part of our school life. There is singing and music around the school each and every day and we put a lot of emphasis on performance, building the children’s confidence and enjoyment.
Our aim is that the children experience a balance of composing, performing and appreciating music.
Lessons for the children from Early Years to Year 6 involve a variety of instruments as well as their voices. Music enables the children to express themselves through sound and gives an opportunity to perform in groups.
Our Year 4 children all have the opportunity to learn wither the violin or cello through the Strings Scheme organised in partnership with the RGS and Southern Pro-Musica. From this we have developed a strings orchestra as well as our own orchestra, recorder group and guitar ensemble. There are also visiting peripatetic tutors for learning various musical instruments, organised through Surrey Arts.
More information on what the children are learning can be found in the Year group Curriculum newsletters which are available for each term.
