Music at Eastling Primary School
The teaching of music is based upon the fact that it is a creative and social art to be enjoyed. Children have the opportunity to enjoy musical experiences through listening, singing, movement and dance and by playing instruments. We employ a specialist music teachers to teach music in EYFS to Year 4 and music is taught by the curriculum leader in Year 5 and 6 who is also a music specialist. This gives pupils the best opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in this area of the curriculum. Within music lessons pupils are given the opportunity to learn the ocarina and recorder as well as a range of pitched and unpitched percussion instruments. As well as this there are opportunities to listen, appraise, compose and improvise.
At Eastling School there is also the opportunity for children to have private lessons in Guitar, Drums and Piano.
We are also involved in many exciting extra curricular events which enhance the music education of children at the school: Highsted School Christmas Music Festival; Young Voices- 02 Arena as well as the annual end of year production put on by Year 5 and 6.
