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 use 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 thoroughly enjoy these opportunities.
We also have Mr Crozer who comes in on a weekly basis to teach Year 6 children guitar. These are weekly paid lessons and the children enjoy showing off their skills in singing assemblies.
Mr Bailey will be beginning Ukulele lessons in September which is exciting!
There is also a weekly singing club to which children are free to come along and sing to their heart’s content! We enjoy learning new songs and listening to "golden oldies".
Overall, Music is seen as a fun and enjoyable part of learning.
