Music Mission Statement 

At our school we think it is vital that children not only develop a love for Music but also the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in a wide range of aspects including singing, composing, listening, improvising, and playing a wide range of musical instruments. We aim to ensure that all children from all backgrounds are given opportunities to perform these skills both in the classroom and also outside of school.

Currently our school uses a Music scheme called Charanga which focuses on different aspects of the Music curriculum. We are also very lucky to be working alongside the Sheffield Music Hub and have had professional teachers come into school to deliver some aspects of the curriculum and also to support KS1 pupils with playing the recorder and also learning how to sing.

We also hold regular singing assemblies which are led by Miss Bates and Mrs Hindley. The children learn a variety of warm up techniques and learn a range of songs across a range of different genres and themes.

During 2015-16 all of our children had the opportunity to perform in a variety of different events from the Christmas period onwards. We had children performing at Crystal Peaks for the Christmas concert, a number of Year 2 children played their recorders for their Christmas concert in school, we had a whole school singing performance at our Easter bonnet parade, KS1 children performed some songs at our church Easter service, Reception children took part in a sing along story at the Crucible Theatre and furthermore all of Year 2 took part in the Singing Festival at Westfield School. We look forward to organising more music based experiences for your children throughout the next school year.      

Arts Week

This half term we have taken part in a wonderful Arts Week. Each year group learnt an exciting song linked to their topic and used different musical instruments to make their performances even more exciting. Nursery performed their song ‘I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside’ and even dressed up in their Summer clothing to help bring their performance to life. Reception performed ‘We’re Going On a Bear Hunt’ and made their own props and scenery so we could really imagine what it would be like to go through the squelchy mud! Year One took the school into the mysterious world of the ocean with their wonderful performance of ‘Under The Sea’. They used different percussion instruments to make the sounds of different sea creatures. Year Two took everyone to Africa with their African masks, African inspired scenery and drums with their performance ‘I Go To Africa’. Have a look below at Year Two performing to the school.
