At St. Mary’s, we love music and singing! We follow the National Curriculum for music and ensure that each class builds upon previous musical knowledge.
Children enjoy the opportunity to perform to each other in special assemblies, and we regularly welcome guest musicians in to perform for the children, or hold workshops to enable the children to experience a range of instruments.
Each year, the children have the change to go to the theatre to appreciate a live concert, and these often involve plenty of audience participation!
We have regular singing practices and enjoy the opportunity to share our songs with our community; our Nativity, Carols by Candlelight and end of year production are highlights in the school calendar.
We have a dedicated music room which holds a variety of wonderful instruments to use!
Keep Calm and Make Music
Arlo's Musical Journey
In 2019, Arlo, head of music, organised a musical journey around the school. Children chose to take part and share their passion of music with children in the school and adults who came to watch. Below are some photos and videos of the journey. Well done to Arlo for organising this event and for the bravery that all the musicians showed.
