At Bannockburn Primary School, we believe that all children have the opportunity to experience, achieve and enjoy the subject of music. Learning and teaching in music is not only based around the 4 areas of the national curriculum (listening, composing, performing and evaluating) but also forms part of our whole school cross–curricular approach to learning and teaching.

All children in KS1 and KS2 classes have weekly music lesson for 40 minutes with a specialist music teacher. In these lessons children are provided with the opportunity to listen to various genres of music, to compose their own music and to play a wide variety of both tuned and un-tuned percussion. Instrumental lessons are available for KS2 children and children have the opportunity to learn drums, guitar, keyboard, clarinet, flute and violin.

After school music clubs have proved to be extremely popular with children at Bannockburn Primary School. Furthermore, children in KS2 also have the opportunity to join the school choir. The school choir allows children to sing both familiar and unfamiliar songs, and to put actions to the songs. Our school choir have taken part in many activities such as performing at the Greenwich School Music Festival and the KS2 Christmas Concert at Blackheath Halls. Through these performances, the children gain memorable experiences that enhance their appreciation of music.

If you would like any further information about music please contact Mr Griffiths who is the school’s Music subject leader.
