Music

 

Music is a key feature of life at Knightlow school and you can't go far without hearing the sound of a member of our Knightlow family singing. We listen to, and perform, a wide range of music and the children love to contribute to whole school performances where music takes centre stage. We base the curriculum on the 'Music Express' scheme which includes lessons in listening, composing and performing, and which builds skills from year to year. This is augmented by various activities and focus events that take place throughout the year to enrich the children's musical understanding. Teachers plan from Curriculum 2014, linking music to topic work when they can, and they use year group descriptors to assess the children's development and progress against age-related expectations.

 

As well as the weekly lessons in individual classes we offer the following music opportunities at Knightlow:

  • Regular 'hands on' music appreciation lessons in Reception led by our school governor, Jody Scuffle;
  • Weekly lessons from the County Music Service in Woodwind, Brass, Guitar and Keyboard instruments. These are open to any child in KS2. If your child is interested in taking up an instrument, please speak to the school office;
  • A KS2 Choir which meets regularly (new members are always welcome);
  • School singing performances at Christmas, the school fete and other events;
  • Wider opportunities such as Singing Playgrounds and Pop UK;
  • Visiting teachers who have provided class and whole school opportunities with instruments and voice;
  • Years 5 and 6 participate in the Young Voices concert at Birmingham Genting Arena annually.

 

We are always on the lookout for new and exciting opportunities for Knightlow children to participate in music, so keep your eyes on newsletters and any class letters that come home.
