Welcome to Music at All Saints.
We love music at our school! Whether it is learning how to play an instrument, performing in the house sing off competition or participating in music lessons; music helps us to feel happy. We learn and use our musical skills both inside and outside the classroom.
All year groups are developing these key skills through Charanga which is a teacher-led music scheme created by Accent Music Hub. This innovative software allows children to explore their musical abilities through singing songs together, making their own compositions and playing instruments.
In Year 4 all our children have weekly guitar lessons with a peripatetic teacher and the children have the opportunity to continue this in Y5 and 6 through the extra guitar lesson in a ‘replay band’.
Outside of the classroom, children are still immersed in an array of musical activities and events. After school, Mrs Cho leads a Choir Club where children rehearse and perform songs. We also perform in the community at Christmas. We have an annual event where the whole school becomes involved. On this music day, everyone dresses as their favourite musician; we have a whole day of exciting musical events, finishing with a house singing competition where all children perform for the parents. We give all of our children opportunities to perform throughout their time at our school, giving them confidence and great memories.
