The core of the music curriculum is taught in six week blocks each term, using units from Charanga musical school. This is enhanced with a weekly singing assembly in which children are taught a range of songs and techniques to support their vocal ability. As a church school, music forms a key part of our collective worship and a wide range of hymns and worship songs are regularly sung.
Wolvey offers a range of extra-curricular activities which are open to children across key stage 2.
The value of music can't be underestimated, it builds self-esteem, promotes well-being and is proven to support learning in other academic areas. That's why we offer Rocksteady lessons in which children learn to perform as a Rock band and develop communication skills. The termly concerts are always a big event on the school calendar! Hopefully, these will resume again soon. More information about Rocksteady is available here.
Beyond the classroom, the school also has a choir who meet weekly to enjoy singing together. They perform at a number of community events including church services which gives them the opportunity to improve their performance skills.
Another singing opportunity is the Young Voices choir! This is an exciting opportunity for singing contemporary songs that the children enjoy learning. We will be attending a performance with many schools to sing together before the end of the academic year.
