In Burnt Oak Primary School, the children enjoy learning music through using tuned and untuned instruments. In each key stage, teachers follow guidelines from the New National Curriculum in order to teach what is needed. We have recently used Music Express to help plan engaging and fun music lessons. All children have the opportunity to compose, perform and evaluate songs.
We are lucky enough in our school to provide tuition lessons for:
- Violin: Years 3-6.
- Recorder: Year 3-4.
- Djembe Drumming: Years 5.
These are taught by local Licensed Music Teachers and the children enjoy these opportunities thoroughly.
There is also a weekly Choir club in which children are free to come along and sing to their heart’s content!
In singing assembly, we try to link songs to topics that are taught during that term and in the near future children will be able to show off what they have learnt in Music to the rest of the school. Overall, Music is seen as a fun and enjoyable part of learning.
