At Westmeads our music lesson are taught by a specialist music teacher, Mrs Diamond. Mrs Diamond helps us to sing and play musical instruments with increasing confidence and control. Her lessons are fun and engaging, and are always linked with the Class topic.
Music is taught by our specialist teacher in different year groups in alternative terms; Year 1: Terms 1 & 2; Reception: Terms 3 & 4; Year 2 are taught recorders from Terms 1 to 4 and also have specialist music teaching in Terms 5 & 6.
We also enjoy learning new songs each week during our singing lessons, and we particularly enjoy performing to parents, carers and visitors in assemblies and at special events throughout the year.
As part of our music curriculum we offer several clubs to encourage the children's love of music.
- Key stage 1 choir led by Mr Wraight
- Ukulele lessons led by Mrs Diamond
- Year 2 Recorder lessons led by Mrs Diamond
There are also many opportunities within school life where the children listen and appraise music within lessons, and learning is brought to life with fun songs and the use of musical instruments in other subject areas.
