Music

 

Music is a much loved subject at Gallions Mount.

All our children are provided with the opportunity to perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians. They learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others as well as have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument such as the ukulele or the recorder. Also, as part of their music provision, the children explore how music is created through the use of pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.

 Some children also have one to one music tuition, allowing the children to learn how to play woodwind instruments. If you are interested in your child having one  to one music tuition, please speak to the office who will be able to advise you of costs and waiting times.

 

 

 

We also have a school choir which is open to all children in Key Stage 2. It is run by Ms Kaur and Zoe and is held every Tuesday after school between 3:15pm and 4:15pm.  In January the school choir attended an event at the O2 called Young Voices 2019 along with thousands of children from all over the UK. They came together to sing songs, dance and perform to an arena full of parents. It was such a great night enjoyed by all children. January 2020 will be our schools 5th time attending Young Voices and we are really looking forward to it. We have a huge choir representing the school made up of 50 children from across Key Stage 2. We look forward to sharing some content with you in the new year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Music company Jo Jingles attends our school every other week to work with children in the Nursery  and Foundation Stage. Jo Jingles provides a fun and educational music, singing and movement  experience for young children. The music sessions encourage aural and oral skill development for all  children involved - and they love it! 

Jo Jingles loves to stimulate young minds and teach children to:

 ♫ To play percussion instruments expressively
 ♫ To sing songs
 ♫ To hold a tune
 ♫ To find the rhythm to move and dance to
 ♫ To make new friends
