We aim to promote an enjoyment and appreciation of music in a variety of forms. Opportunities will be provided for the children to listen to, compose and perform their own music. The school uses resources such as ‘Sounds Alive’, ‘Musical Express’ and Sounds of Music, alongside the LA resource of ‘Sounds Practical’ to ensure a consistent & enjoyable Music curriculum is delivered. We also have a wide range of instruments within the school. The Y4 pupils are involved in the Wider Opportunities Music Project, learning to play an instrument during weekly lessons throughout the year.
Children from Y1 to Y6 have the opportunity of learning to play a wide range of instruments through Wigan’s ITP service. Tutors from the Instrumental Teaching service can be booked to come into school to give lessons in recorders, woodwind, keyboard, violin, guitar or brass where the need and interest arises.
The school also endeavours to provide our pupils with opportunities to hear different styles of music being played by visiting groups of musicians and to take part in choral events, such as ‘Let’s Sing’, involving many schools in the Local Authority.
