In KS2 we have a music programme that ensures that all children have an opportunity to experience learning at least four instruments by the time they’ve left St Peter’s.
We currently employ a specialist music teacher to deliver our music provision in KS2.
During the course of the year, we perform regularly in our community, such as for Church events, in local nursing homes and for local festivals.
We have a wide range of music clubs, including choir, ukulele and ‘The Big Scratch Project’. We are the hub for the Otter Music Collective, which provides the opportunity for children from local schools to play and perform together in a group on a weekly basis.
We are currently raising money to fund a specialist music room at the school.
Here is the timetable for instruments this year:
|Year 3||Beat Blocks||Ocarinas||Recorders||Introduction to Ukueles|
|Year ¾||Beat Blocks||Ocarinas||Ukuleles||Recorders-focus on notation|
|Year 4/5||Advanced Ukuleles||Djembes||Guitars|
|Year 5||Advanced Ukuleles||Djembes||Guitars|
|Year 6||Guitars Consolidation||ICT and singing, plus an aspect of child initiated- Melodians?|
The school provides extra music lessons both during school hours and after school.
