At Kirkby Malzeard there are lots of opportunities to make music. We have a whole-school singing assembly every Tuesday, weekly class music lessons with a specialist music teacher, and visiting instrumental teachers from the Music Hub. We also listen to music and sing in collective worship, in class and of course there is lots of music making in EYFS!

In class music lessons with Mrs Harris we are following a Music Express scheme of work. This is a varied programme which enables children to sing, compose, play instruments and listen in a carefully structured progressive manner. We are developing our singing voices, pulse and rhythm awareness and listening skills through songs, musical games and composition tasks, and being exposed to music from different cultures, contexts and historical times.

Other opprtunities in our Music curriculum:

Various musical clubs have run in the past few years, including drumming club, choir club and singing games club. This term we have a choir club that is practising for the Young Voices concert. As a school we are preparing to sing for events in the community, such as the Patronal festival and community Christmas lunch. We have regular performance opportunities in school such as the fundraising concert in Summer term when every class enjoyed performing in front of an audience again.

This year Cedar class are taking part in a String instrument project with a teacher from the Music Hub. They are having class lessons all year on either violin, viola or cello. We can't wait to hear what music they make together!

Currently we have instrumental teachers coming in to teach pupils the Piano, Guitar and Cornet. We would love more pupils to take up an instrument, so if they are inspired please contact the Music Hub and find out more. There are some discounts available so please have a look at their website to see if your child is eligible.
