MUSIC & PERFORMANCE
We aim for every child in Year 3 to be taught a musical instrument through the Wider Opportunities Scheme run by Lancashire Music Service. At present, the children are learning to play the guitar, and in previous years, they have learnt violin and brass instruments. We are able to offer free tuition for one academic year due to financial support from our PTA. As part of the follow on service offered by Lancashire Music Service, children are able to continue lessons after this free tuition has ended. Each year, the children are encouraged to showcase their talents at various public events.
The Lancashire Music Service also provides additional music tuition. Currently, pupils receive tuition in woodwind, piano, guitar and violin. These lessons are organised via a private arrangement between the Music Service and parents. Tuition is held during school hours on school premises. Please contact the school office for further information.
Every year, key stage 1 children take part in the nativity performance, which gives them the opportunity to develop their singing, dancing and drama skills. Key stage 2 children also stage a production at the local high school, where they perform in a drama theatre, giving them a taste of what real performers’ experience.
