Music Lead- Miss White (Year 1 Class Teacher)
Music is an important part of Lunsford Primary School. In timetabled lessons, children learn rhythm, melody, percussion technique, singing and music appreciation. Every week we have a singing assembly where children learn a wide variety of new songs.
Children in Key Stage 2 are given the free opportunity to play the violin in group lessons. Those children that want to continue with this can then do so, although there is a cost to these additional lessons.
During the year, children put on performances for Christmas, show assemblies and a year 6 leaving production- all these involve music and singing to an audience. Whenever possible, the school enters local music festivals and events.
This year we have an African drumming workshop visiting us to celebrate 'Cultural Diversity Day'. We also have an opportunity to create music outdoors!
