Music and Singing
At The Oaks, we teach music through the progression of skills across the year groups. Children review what they have been taught in the previous year groups and build upon this knowledge through the acquisition of new learning. We are lucky to also have the support from expert music practitioners in Key Stage 2. These practitioners come into school to work with specific year groups linked to a certain instrument. Each class is taught music for around one hour each week, and this teaching is supported by the online learning platform, Charanga. Each child also has a login for YUMU which is the Charanga site children can access at home or during remote learning.
Year 3 have weekly African drum lessons with Mr Hooper, which the children really enjoy. Year 6 have weekly lessons and are learning the bass guitar. As the children move through the school they learn several instruments, how to read and write music as well as take part in weekly whole school singing at the end of each assembly. Children who learn an instrument through a music specialist have the opportunity to perform to parents once per term.
