At Primrose Hill Primary School we aim to provide a stimulating, caring and harmonious environment with music increasingly touching the everyday lives of our children.
We provide a curriculum which enables children to play and perform in solo and ensemble context, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression. Children will be encouraged to improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related dimensions of music.
Through listening skills children will develop attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory and they will have opportunity to listen to, appreciate and understand a wide range of high quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and great composers and musicians - so don't be surprised if they're suddenly telling you about 'The Beetles' one day and 'Mozart' the next!
Children in Year 3 are given the chance to learn a musical instrument through MAPAS and on site musicians and we look forward to hearing a showcase of their talents.
As the profile of music continues to grow at a rapid speed, music lessons have now been rolled out to children through the school with almost a quarter of the school children now accessing music lessons.
Additionally, we continue to offer opportunities for all children to perform in musical showcases, competitions and concerts allowing them to show-off their fantastic talents to friends, family and the public.
