Music at Westmoor Primary Information

All children are given a variety of musical experiences throughout their time at Westmoor. We have regular singing assemblies and our Singing Strategy ensures that children learn new, exciting, age appropriate songs in class every half term. We fully embrace Wider Opportunities, which enables all children to learn to play three instruments during the time at our school. this involves children learning to play penny whistles in Years 1 and 2, recorders in Years 3 and 4, and ukuleles in Years 5 and 6. In addition, children have access to a wide range of percussion instruments for class based musical work, alongside regular listening sessions in which they are introduced to some of the major classical works and music from other cultures. We take part in musical projects such as 'BBC Ten Pieces' to further enrich the children's musical experience. Children in KS2 also have the opportunity to join our school choir, which performs at many school and collaborative events. Instrumental tuition is available for KS2 pupils at a cost to parents.
