Music is being taken to the next level at Beck Row Primary School, with each year group learning a different instrument throughout the year.
After Year 4 pupils began learning the clarinet as part of the countywide Wider Opportunities programme, headteacher Emma Nicholson decided to vamp up music education across the school. Other classes are now learning percussion instruments, including glockenspiel and chime bells, the recorder and the keyboard, and will also learn about key musicians within their genre.
Ms Nicholson said: “Progressively over the six years, pupils will develop their ability to read music and enhance their performance techniques, as well as develop key musical vocabulary. The scheme’s key theme is ‘experience and enjoy’.”
