Music and Performing Arts
We use the Charanga music scheme to teach the national curriculum for music in Key Stage 1 and 2 in order to support teacher subject knowledge. We are fortunate that several of our staff have expertise in music/performing arts. Peripatetic teachers also offer small group and individual music and singing lessons to our pupils. We have a school choir ‘Glee’ in Key Stage 2 who regularly perform at community events in and outside of school. Each year our Year 6 pupils put on an ‘all singing, all dancing’ production for parents and friends of the school as a grand finale to their time with us. There are opportunities throughout the school year for all year groups to perform and showcase their narrating, acting, music, singing and dancing. These include Harvest and Christmas assemblies, EYFS and Key Stage 1 spring assemblies, Key Stage 2 year group assemblies and a termly ‘Cowbell’ assembly where anything goes and allows us to discover and celebrate new talents and interests from staff as well as pupils. We also take part in ‘Time to Dance’ at the Worthing Pavilion Theatre and the Young Voices Concert at the O2 arena in London.
