We love music here at Weddington Primary School and we are thrilled to have been awarded the Music Mark. We strongly believe that music is a language that everyone can enjoy. Therefore, we aim to deliver a high-quality music education which inspires pupils to develop their enjoyment of music. Children are provided with many opportunities of live music to inspire them to begin music lessons. We believe that music develops self-confidence and creativity. Throughout the year, we celebrate many events such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter, in Key Stages, and invite parents and carers in to celebrate these special, memorable times. Each year at Weddington, we hold ‘Weddy’s Got Talent’ which is a wonderful way for children to share their musical talents with the school community.
In Reception we really enjoy music. We love singing nursery rhymes and lullabies and using our outdoor music station. This Year we will be singing songs ‘all about me’ and will be learning about music from other countries. In Key Stage 1 we develop our understanding of pulse, rhythm and pitch through different music styles. At the end of Key Stage 1, Year 2 put on a fabulous end of Key Stage performance including singing and performing, using instruments. In Key Stage 2 we continue to develop our understanding of pulse, rhythm and pitch. We sing songs and learn to play instruments, composing our own melodies. Throughout our time in Key Stage 2 we learn about The History of Music and about some of the Greatest Composers of all time. Year 3 particularly enjoy being taught to play an instrument by a specialist from Warwickshire Music Hub. At the end of Year 6, children showcase their musical talents in a fantastic, end of Year production.
