Music manager Mrs T Rowlinson
Welcome to the Music page! Here at All Saints the children are taught music throughout the school. Teachers aim to promote a love of singing, composing and appraising.
Most classes teach music through theme lessons and link the learning to their termly theme.
This means that music lessons are not necessarily taught on a weekly basis but rather blocked to have a whole day of music or 3 afternoons a week throughout a theme. This gives the children longer to appraise and compose their own piece of music, allowing time for self and peer assessment of their composition.
We use our voices, percussion and tuned instruments in our compositions as well as using iPads and other electronic equipment to compose, appraise and record music using ICT.
We are trying to promote singing for enjoyment and offer all Key Stage 2 pupils the opportunity to take part in the school choir.
We also offer many wider opportunities for learning to play a musical instrument with a specialist music teacher. Click to find out more.

Development plans for Music
There are key areas for the development of Music throughout the school. Some of the new initiatives taking place this year include:
Challenge is part of every lesson at All Saints, including music lessons. Children are encouraged to take part in curriculum challenges which can incorporate their musical talents and there will be a musical challenge later in the year.
If your child takes part in any musical activities outside of school please do let their class teacher know so we can celebrate their achievements. If you have a musical talent you would like to share with the children please do contact us and we will arrange a visit to school.
