Children at Paddocks are a very tuneful group! Music is taught in every year group through a combination of class teachers, a specialist music teacher and peripatetic teachers from the County Music School.
Children in Year 4 have a whole class guitar lesson every week taught by Mr Morley from the County Music School. Children can continue this guitar tuition in small groups through Year 5.
Year 2 are taught percussion, again by the County Music School during the summer term, and all class teachers teach the music curriculum through their yearly Learning Themes. This includes composition, notation and performance.
Every week the school comes together for our Singing Assembly, and children also have the opportunity to be part of our choir.
We attend a range of performance events including the County Music School annual celebration performance, Snape Maltings and Young Voices at the O2 arena.
