The aims of Music in our school are to ensure that all pupils:
At the Divine Mercy we use Charanga to support our music teaching. This is an online music scheme with lots of visual aids and interactive resources to support your children's learning about music. Our children love using our new set of glockenspiels, percussion trolleys and recorders to take part practically in classroom music lessons.
Take a look at our music curriculum overview below to find out what units your child will be covering in music this year.
Year 3 children also have the opportunity to learn the recorder as a part as ‘first access’. This is a fantastic opportunity which will hopefully get children taking up recorder lessons.
We aim to ensure that all pupils receive high quality teaching in the subject of music.
We value music as a form of confidence building, expression, as a social subject and for enjoyment.
It is also a way of artistically promoting our school and helps to unite the local community.
This year the Divine Mercy took part in an amazing project working with the Hallé Orchestra and the Northern Ballet School. Class 6D were selected to create music, dance and costumes for a performance at The Bridgewater Hall. They worked so hard and produced some amazing dance and music. The focus of the performance was 'Back to Nature' with our school using the works of the Czech composer, Bedřich Smetana and the composition 'River Moldau. We are all really proud of them. Here are some pictures from the performance:
