Music

Music

 

Music at High View Primary School contributes to the life of the school and the development of the whole child. Each child takes part in class music lessons, which are well planned to encourage the development of listening, appraising, performing and composing music. These lessons are planned for all ability groups and offer equal opportunities for all children to take part. Whenever appropriate, Music is linked to other areas of the curriculum, for example Year 4 learnt about the features of Latin Music and explored playing different rhythmic patterns to link to their Latin America 'Discovery' topic.

 

Children are given opportunities to develop their performing skills throughout their time at High View. These include, parent assemblies, school choir performances, instrumental concerts which showcase the work of children having private music tuition, Christmas performances for KS1 and KS2, talent shows, as well as drumming performances at the Fairfield Halls.

 

There are opportunities for children to learn a variety of instruments through private tuition including, piano, flute. In Year 4 the children all learn drumming as part of our curriculum provision. These year groups get weekly class tuition and at the end of Year 4, the children perform some of their work in front of an audience at the Fairfield Halls.

 

High View also has a Junior Choir which is privileged to sing in front of different audiences. Throughout the year the choir perrform to parents and peers during concerts and school fairs. Each year they also enjoy singing to local senior residents at 'Cloverdale' in Wallington and as part of our school 'pensioner's party'. A highlight of the year is singing carols to parents and locals in our 'Carols with the Salvation Army' event at Christmas.
