At Cuddington, we deliver the statutory music curriculum through the whole school 'Sing Up' scheme of work. The scheme supports children's vocal abilities whilst giving them opportunities to learn tuned and untuned musical instruments. The varied song repertoire ensures children learn a range of songs from different cultures and historical time periods, including classic music. Children learn key composition skills and reflect critically on their own and their peers work.
Extra Curricular Opportunities
In Year 4, children have a weekly violin lesson as part of the wider opportunities scheme. This continues throughout the year allowing children to gain a basic competence and become confident using a musical instrument. In addition to this, each year the school choir attends 'Young Voices' where they perform to a packed out Manchester Arena. The choir are also very active in the local community, performing at the local retirement homes, the village gala, the Christmas fair and at church.
There are a range of music lessons available to children provided by outside providers. Children are able to choose from the piano, keyboard, saxophone, guitar and violin.
