Music

In music lessons the children are involved in making and responding to music. We aim to develop each of the interrelated skills of performing, composing and appraising in all activities and extend these skills by applying listening skills, knowledge and understanding of music.

At the same time it is important to develop the idea that music is fun and is for life. The children are given opportunities to experience a wide range of live music, both in our academy and at other venues, such as the Bridgwater Hall, Manchester. They are also encouraged to perform their own music for an audience, developing their self-confidence and sensitivity towards others.

As part of our extensive programme of extra-curricular activities, we encourage children in Years 3-6 to join our choir. Recorders are taught in Years 1 and 2 during weekly music lessons and in a KS2 lunchtime club.  Ukulele Club also runs at lunchtimes. The children enjoy learning new skills and performing to others.

Year 4 children all learn violin, viola or cello as part of their weekly music lesson. Many KS2 children take up the opportunity of instrumental music lessons from the peripatetic music service. Pupils often go on to take part in Wigan Music Service bands and choirs and we hold our own fantastic annual Summer Music Concert at St Wilfrid’s Church where children from Year’s 1 to 6 perform to a packed audience.
