The school aims to develop in its pupils a lively enthusiasm for music. This involves the following activities, which will be part of everyday life in school and be involved in all other subjects and classroom topics:
Singing - group and solo
Percussion activities relating to the development of the musical concepts of:- Rhythm
Movement will also play a strong part in developing these concepts.
Music is seen as an essential aspect of life, linking enjoyment, practical skills, discipline, emotional satisfaction, social involvement and spiritual awareness. We have a well equipped music room.
The Richmond Music Trust (a registered charity) offers instrumental teaching beginning with stringed instruments and recorders at Key Stage 1 and moving on to wind and brass instrument at Key Stage 2.
Children are also able to make full use of a well-equipped music room where they will be able to listen to, respond to and make their own music.
