At Weston Rhyn Primary School, Music is an important part of school life and our aspiration is that every child adopts a lifelong love of music.
Through playing, singing, creating and performing, children will develop confidence, communication skills, thinking and creative skills and improve their emotional well-being.
Our children participate in singing, tuned and untuned percussion work, composition, and listening to live and recorded music. All children are taught the skills to be able to compose using musical instruments. Children learn to play the recorder in Year 1 to 6. They will learn to read music, play as an ensemble and use musical notation to compose their own music. We value to importance of developing these skills while at Primary school.
Singing is a highly important part of our music curriculum. Weekly singing assemblies take place to teach children how to sing with a sense of pitch and melody. They are taught how to warm up their voices, sing in rounds and harmony, and build up a repertoire of songs. We have a school choir which meet each week and perform at community events and competitions.
