Music

At Wildridings, we teach Music through both our Topic lessons and discrete sessions. From EYFS to Year 6, the children are exposed to a range of different genres of Music. These are linked to the chosen Topics, e.g. Year 2 sing sea shanties in a round as part of their ‘Land Ahoy!’ Topic. In addition to our Topics, we have a weekly timetabled Music lesson for each year group for each half term.

The children participate in ‘Sing Up!’ This is an opportunity for children to learn a song linked to a whole school theme. Each year group rehearses their song and then performs this to the rest of the school.

In Key Stage 1, we perform a Nativity each year and in Key Stage 2, children in Year 6 have an opportunity to perform a ‘Musical’ to parents and the rest of the school.

Our Year 3 pupils, have an opportunity to learn how to play the recorder over a number of weeks with a final performance to their families.

In addition to our school curriculum, we also encourage outside visitors to share their musical knowledge with us and enthuse the children. In previous years, we have participated in African Drumming workshops and Musical Theatre productions.

African Drumming Workshop

Mandinka drumming session was a huge hit (see what we did there haha) and it was so lovely seeing the children respond so positively to a new culture and sing along as well as play in rhythm! Wildridings was definitely a buzz with life and spirit today.
