Welcome back to pupils after the summer holidays. Curriculum music lessons have begun again this week, for all pupils, including reception. Reception will be having their introduction to music lessons through singing lots of simple songs and playing lots of musical games. Today they even had a go on the drums, which was great fun. All other years will continue their music lessons - this half term's focus is individual instrumental skills. Years 1 and 2 will be using the percussion instruments, years 3 and 4 will be continuing with the tin whistle, year 5 will be focusing on keyboard skills again and year 6 will be studying the ukulele. For years 3 to 6, they all studied this term's instrument last year, so the aim is to consolidate and extend their skills on this instrument. Lessons are split into three sections, as detailed in the top three boxes below: Kodaly (starter), Main lesson focus and to finish, listening to music. The main lesson focus after half term in the run up to Christmas will be singing and preparing songs for the performances.
