Music Lead:

Mrs Tyas

We aim to develop in children the ability to listen to and appreciate a wide variety of music and to make judgements about musical quality. Through active involvement in different forms of music making children also develop their individual creative talents and a sense of group identity and togetherness. There is a strong ICT link with school wide use of the Charanga programme, and the development of an ipad band.
School has a set of samba drums, used with tuition under the Wider Opportunities Programme, and a class set of ukuleles as well a large collection of percussion instruments. Musical performances form an integral part of class assemblies throughout the school year, while regular hymn practice introduces children to a wide range of religious and spiritual songs.
The school choir, made up of volunteers who enjoy singing, has been a regular performer  at the Longbenton Music Festival over the last 25 years, and in 2016 the ipad band from Year 5 made an enthusiastic and skilful debut!
Instrument  tuition - recorders and violins - is available from peripatetic teachers payable half termly in advance.
