Learn Together, Shine Together.

MUSIC

Each class has music lessons within the school timetable. In current Year 4, the Blackburn and Darwen Music Service lead a music lesson each week. Currently the children are learning to play the recorder and then the flute.

Singing is a part of every music lesson. As a church school, we also see singing hymns as an important factor within our worship and a means of collectively praising the word of God. The warmth and depth of feeling behind the children’s singing is certainly moving and gives everyone a feeling of togetherness and enjoyment. 

We also believe it is extremely important, whenever possible for the children to listen to live music and we are exploring ways of providing more opportunities for this.

We have a selection of musical instruments (including a full class set of recorders) which the children are able to play in order to develop their skills of playing and composing.

We currently access the online music scheme: 'Active Music Digital' which supports the pupils in developing their skills of singing, listening, performing, improvising and composing.

After school we also offer a Junior ‘Singing Club’ which is a club created for all children who enjoy singing, regardless of ability. The Singing Group has performed in Blackburn Cathedral and Blackburn's King George's Hall as part of local 'Big Sing' events.

Aims

We aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians

  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence

  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
