Music has a power of forming the character and should therefore be introduced into the education of the young. (Aristotle)
Music is an integral part of school life at Highburton First School. Every class receives one music lesson a week from a specialist music teacher.
In Reception and Year 1 music teaching and learning is covered through singing so that children can immediately be music makers, without the demands of learning to play an instrument. Year 2 children also learn through song but are given the added opportunity of reading a score to play miniature hand bells.
In KS2 all our children are given the opportunity to play a woodwind (recorder), string (ukulele) and brass instrument (cornet, baritone, trombone), learning to read music notation, make musical decisions and generally enjoy making lots of musical noise!
There are many opportunities for our children to perform to an audience as they progress through school. Please enjoy some of the talented performances seen every week in the classroom by clicking on the links below.
