At St Peter and St Paul CE VA Primary School we believe that the arts, including music, have a critical role within our curriculum in giving children the opportunity to learn through experience and experimentation.  

Music is taught across the school by a mixture of peripatetic teachers, music specialists and class teachers.  In Key Stage One the focus in on rhythm, pattern and the use of voice through singing and rhyme.  Children are introduced to the element of performance and using symbols to represent musical notation in simple composition.

In Key Stage Two children learn drumming and recorder with specialist teachers; they also experience composition, voice technique, music appreciation and the history of music.

 

In Years 4 and 6 children work with voice coaches to perform at the De La Warr Pavilion with a live orchestra.

Children also have the opportunity to learn to play the violin, keyboard, flute and guitar.

Children are given opportunities to perform to the school throughout the year culminating with a Musical Extravaganza.

At St Peter and St Paul CE VA Primary we aim to give the children rich and varied experiences for not only making music but also listening to music.   During their time in school children have the opportunity to hear a variety of professional performances such as steel pans, brass instruments and African singing and drumming.

We work closely with St Richard's teaching school and East Sussex Music Service to ensure children receive high quality musical experiences throughout their time at primary school.
