We offer children throughout the school as many exciting activities as possible to develop their musical skills.
Children in Reception enjoy a range of games and songs closely linked to the different areas of learning within the Foundation Stage Curriculum.
This is continued during the initial transition phase as children settle into Key Stage One at which point musical activities are linked to creative topics. Mrs Murphy is working with children in Years One and Two throughout the year to explore the music curriculum.
Children in Key Stage Two experience a wide variety of musical activities. Each year different classes work closely with peripatetic teachers linked to Sefton Music Hub and have the opportunity to learn an instrument. Currently Year 4 are learning to play violins with Mrs Reid and children in Year 5 are learning to play brass instruments with Mr Fogg.
As well as learning to play instruments children are also involved in creative activities such as composing their own music and performing for their peers. These activities may be linked to their class topics or draw from resources such as Music Express.
