The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
Whole School Singing Assemblies
Whole school singing assemblies are delivered every month, where children learn songs from a range of different genres. Additionally, the children will also become familiar with a range of different composers.
The choir takes place, after school, every Monday. It is delivered by a professional performer and singing specialist. The school choir offers children the unique opportunity to take part in a number of performances, with schools all over Birmingham. In addition, the children also partake in a special assembly, in which they perform an array of songs that they have learned. We have watched the children not only become skilled performers but also develop their team-building skills and confidence.
The Music Service
At Leigh Primary School children have the opportunity to learn how to play a selection of different instruments (such as the clarinet, flute, fife, violin and steel pan drums). Children have weekly sessions and are also given the opportunity to take the instruments home. A number of different performances are arranged throughout the year, enabling the children to showcase their compositions to their peers and parents.
