The teaching of music at Oxclose Primary Academy follows the aims of the National Curriculum. We want children to experience music by way of practical engagement in performing, composing and appraising. Children are given the opportunity to listen to a range of different genres of music and develop their aural skills. We use the Music Express sceme to support our teaching of Music.
Singing and work with rhythm, play an important part in the development of musical skills. All children have opportunities to sing within lessons, in weekly singing assemblies and in musical productions. Peripatetic music teachers visit our school weekly, to offer some children violin and drumming lessons. In addition to this the music specialist, Mrs Stone, from Oxclose Community Academy teaches children for one afternoon each week. An after school choir is available for Key Stage 2 children.
