Singing - We teach the children singing skills through a singing assembly each week.


In Key Stage 1 - Children follow the Music Express scheme of work whilst also looking at key musicians and compositions.

Reception -

Year 1 -

Year 2 - 


In Key Stage 2, we have created a curriculum which provides the children with the knowledge of key composers as well as compositions linked to the drivers of the curriculum.

We teach music in an intense block across 3 weeks of the year. This allows the children the opportunity to be immersed in the topic and give them space and opportunities to practice their skills. Music is also taught incidentally through curriculum sessions where applicable.

In Year 3, the children will all have the opportunity to learn the tuba. The lessons will be delivered by the Oldham Music Service.
