Singing is at the heart of our school – we are a Platinum Sing Up school. Children learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music of their own and with others. Children have the opportunity to perform in either the KS1 singing club or the KS2 choir. Regular performance opportunities are offered to all children (e.g Sing Up annual assembly).
KS2 children have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. All children in KS2 will have learned at least one instrument by the end of the key stage. Instrumental lessons are delivered by music specialists. The inter-related dimensions of music are explored during music lessons as pupils listen with attention to detail to music across a range of historical periods. The works of the great composers and musicians are studied throughout their time at Ravenscroft and children will appreciate and understand a wide range of music drawn from different traditions. Children are able to use technology as well as classroom instruments to compose their own pieces.
