COVID 19 UPDATE - SCHOOL CLOSURE

We are currently operating as an emergency care facility for children of key workers (e.g. NHS staff, police, others in frontline services) and children with certain needs. The Government have advised that children stay at home where possible and only use this service when there is no alternative provision for the children.

Story Wood School Sowing the seeds of success

Music

 

 

Music is taught across school through practical experiences. We provide a range of music lessons for children across our school from Y2-6. This includes specialist teachers being bought in from the Music Service to teach brass and violin. We believe this develops the whole child and their ‘stickability’ as they learn about music, rhythm and performance through learning to play a musical instrument. The school uses Charanga across all year groups (with the exception of Y4). All Year 4 pupils take part in the Wider Opportunities programme and learn to play a brass instrument, which they have the option to continue to play into Y5 & Y6. Children also have the opportunity to visit Symphony Hall and take part in Music concerts.

 

As part of the Acorn Partnership, pupils have the opportunity to play in a shared music concert once a year. Parents are also invite into school termly to share in our whole school celebration of music.

As a result of our music curriculum the school achieved Music Mark which is awarded by the Birmingham Music Service.
