At Dunsville Primary School, we love music. We teach music from the foundation stage to year 6 and we are lucky to have a number of teachers who can play musical instruments and read music. We are also joined this year by Mrs Dendle, who teaches individual woodwind tuition across key stage 2 and delivers specialist sessions to years 3, 4 and 5 for a term each.
In school, we use the Charanga scheme of work to support deliver the music curriculum. We believe in a practical curriculum, which the children really enjoy. The children have the opportunity to listen and appraise a wide variety of different styles of music, practise, perform and compose using glockenspiels and our own musical instruments.
We also have a school choir which we are really proud of. We practise after school each week in the autumn term and sing for enjoyment! We perform at a range of events, including singing at the over 65s Christmas party, carol singing at Sainsburys and singing at the local residential home.
Every two years, we also take the children to the Young Voices concert at Sheffield Arena, which is always a fantastic event. Many parents choose to join us in the audience and it is always a highlight of the year. Please find photos of these events below.
