In Key Stage 2 pupils are taught to:

  • Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
  • Improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related dimensions of music
  • Listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory
  • Use and understand staff and/or other musical notations

We offer a range of musical tuition; whole class group and individual lessons with peripatetic tutors (guitar and ukulele). We produce regular musical performances through the year to allow families and friends to share in the musical successes of our children.
