Music thrives in our school. We deliver a well-structured programme of music lessons taught by Miss Whitehouse, a specialist music teacher. Pupils in EYFS and KS1 have opportunities to sing, play instruments and listen to range of music that is often linked to the themes they are studying. Pupils in Year 3, 4 & 6 receive music lesson for an hour each week. Their lessons are also often linked with themes but they also have the opportunity to learn recorder, ukulele and keyboard. Year 5 pupils take part in the ‘Surrey Get Vocal’ project led by a professional singer who visits each week.
In addition we offer our pupils opportunities to learn a variety of instruments with visiting instrumental teachers. The children can have individual or small group lessons in keyboard, guitar, violin, clarinet, flute and trumpet.
Pupils in KS 2 can also sign up to Choir and rehearse songs for the ‘Young Voices’ event at the O2, in London. In the spring/summer terms pupils who learn instruments can belong to the School Orchestra.
