Music led by miss clark

Within the teaching of the Music curriculum, the children will have the opportunities to develop an appreciation of a wide range of music, to extend their interests and to increase their ability to make judgements of music quality. They will acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to make music, for example in community music making, and where appropriate, to follow a music-related career. They will develop skills; attitudes and attributes that can support learning in other subject areas and that are needed for life and work e.g. listening skills, the ability to concentrate, creativity, intuition, aesthetic sensitivity, perseverance, self-confidence and sensitivity towards others.

Music plays an important part in the life of the school and is enjoyed by both performers and listeners.

Peripatetic teachers teach a range of musical instruments, including violin, keyboard, piano, woodwind and guitar. Please ask for details.

All Year 3 pupils are given a violin at the beginning of the year and will learn to play the instrument until the end of the year. Weekly lessons are taught by peripatetic teachers from the West Sussex music service.

Additionally, we have a very active school choir that performs at school events, local fayres and annually at The Hawth Theatre as part of the Locality Singing Project.
