Music is a key part of our curriculum and plays a vital role in stimulating the lives of the pupils at Vernon Primary School.
Each class has a weekly curriculum music lesson with their teacher. We follow the National Curriculum, using a variety of instruments to explore and combine sounds and we love composing music our own pieces to perform to the rest of the class.
Throughout the year, each year group will have the exciting opportunity to be taught music by Mr Richardson, our music specialist. During Autumn term, Year 2 and Year 3 will build upon their instrumental skills and will begin to explore tempo and pitch through glockenspiels.
We also receive funding from the Love Music Trust and the PTA to allow the Year 5 pupils to learn a instrument for a term.
There are so many musical opportunities at Vernon Primary School and one of the key ones is to learn to play a musical instrument taught by one of our peripatetic instrument teachers.
We are pleased to host a team of highly qualified peripatetic instrumental teachers. They teach their lessons within the school day, and they operate a rolling timetable so that the children do not miss the same portion of the same lesson each week.
The instrumental opportunities are:
Monday - Guitar/Ukulele via Fidler Music - firstname.lastname@example.org
Wednesday - Drums with Mr Dan Coppock - 07887 843429 - email@example.com
Thursday - Piano with Mrs Val Stark - firstname.lastname@example.org
Friday - Brass with Graham Longson - 0758 828 2200 email@example.com
Due to current restrictions, we will be unable to hold singing lessons or singing assemblies in line with current guidelines. However, we are looking forward to resuming these in the future.
