Children will learn to appreciate the pleasure to be gained from music. We offer music through singing, playing a variety of musical instruments, listening to different types of music and starting to compose their own music. Children in KS2 also have the opportunity to join the choir, attend extra-curricular music clubs and to learn to play a musical instrument taught by our peripatetic teacher from the Lancashire Music Service.
