All Saints’ Church of England Primary School Putney

Rooted in Faith, Growing through Learning

Music

Music is a real strength of the school. In nursery the building bricks are laid with daily music: instruments are always in the outside area; the children sing together and a variety of music is listened to. From Reception to Year 6, weekly lessons with skills being taught in line with the New Curriculum are taught. Class music consists of: singing, composing and listening. An emphasis is placed on practical music making all the way through to year 6. The children are given plenty of opportunities to compose from raps to Christmas carols.

 

Many opportunities for performing are provided, e.g. the nursery nativity, EYFS/KS1 nativity, summer concert, assemblies and church services.

 

Every child from Year 2 upwards learns the recorder in their class music lesson and the children have the opportunity to learn the violin from Year 3. Children who are competent on the recorder by the time they are in Year 4 are given the opportunity to learn the treble recorder.

 

Extra-curricular music includes an upper KS2 choir and a recorder ensemble- featuring the whole range of recorders.

 

Music in the community is also important and embraced at All Saints'. The choir have sung at the Wandsworth Mayor's Charity Carol Concert and to elderly parishioners.

 

The children have regular opportunities to listen to live music and visit the LSO school concerts at the Barbican.

 

Y6 composed their own Christmas Carols in groups.  They wrote the lyrics first and then added a melody.  The following shows the carols being performed.
