The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
Whole School Singing Assemblies
Whole school singing assemblies are delivered every half term, 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 affords children the unique opportunity to take part in a number of performances, with schools all over the district. In addition, the children also partake in a special assembly, in which they perform an array of songs that they have learnt. 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 a selection of different instruments (wind, brass, drums etc.). These lessons are delivered by an experienced and qualified musician. We also allow the children 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.
