"Music can change the world"



"Music is life. That’s why our hearts have beats"

Cecily Morgan

Young Voices 2024

Our school choir worked incredibly hard to prepare for Young Voices! We learnt some fantastic songs and dance moves. There were some beautiful songs with fantastic history such as Get On Board which was written by a Gospel Choir and celebrated the history and culture of gospel choirs.

We travelled to Sheffield Arena and enjoyed a day of rehearsals before inviting parents and carers in to enjoy all of our hard work! The choir enjoyed a range of performances from dance group Urban Strides as well as enjoying some fantastic singing from Natalie Williams. During the performance, we sang our hearts out and created a truly unforgettable experience!

Well done choir of 2024! We can’t wait until next year!


We aim to make music an enjoyable learning experience for all our children. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up the confidence of all children. We aim for children to gain a good understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing and composing across a wide variety of periods, styles, traditions and musical genres.


Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to sing in tune and with other people. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music. Children develop descriptive skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent feelings and emotions. We teach them the disciplined skills of recognising pulse and pitch. We teach the children how to work with others to compose music and perform for an audience. Children begin to learn music theory and how to interpret music in different genres.


We have whole school singing once a week during Singing Assembly, and a school choir who attend the Young Voices Concert annually. Our Year 3 class have weekly Recorder lessons provided by an external agency, as well as all pupils having opportunities for private music lessons in school. From a young age, pupils are exposed to melody and song, beginning with our nursery, where routines are regularly sung and chanted and a weekly song and rhyme time is experienced. Music is often incorporated into other subjects in our school, for example using instrumental pieces to inspire written work in literacy, or the discussion and evaluation of hymn lyrics in Religious Education.
