As a ‘working towards Artsmark’ school, we recognise the importance of the arts. We strive to achieve music excellence for all children through a curriculum which creates authentic opportunities that excite, engage and inspire all learners. Our children are provided with opportunities to listen to, analyse and create music whilst building upon musical skills year by year. In addition to this children in years 2 and 3 have an opportunity to learn to play the recorder.
We use singing as a platform to praise in assemblies, collective worships and masses. Children are encouraged to perform in groups and as individuals through song to help build confidence. In addition to this, our year 3 and 4 children are taught choral singing by the Leeds Diocese.
Here at St. Mary’s we host choir and Musical Theatre club for key stage two and Music club for key stage one.
