Music is a real strength at Therfield First School. Our music specialist delivers weekly high quality music lessons to all children. Everybody has the chance to learn to sing and play instruments. Each week we have a whole school extended singing assembly where we learn songs in a range of styles and we regularly sing to a range of audiences. Children sing as part of the whole school Nativity and end of year play, as well as in carol concerts, open evenings and for other occasions such as singing at the local nursing home. Our Year 4 children sing at West Road Concert Hall with ‘Youth Makes Music’ and our Year 3 children take part in an annual Performing Arts Day at Meridian Upper School. We also sing in class to help us with our learning in other subjects e.g. singing times tables, topic songs and counting songs.
All children are provided with the opportunity to have 1:1 or small group music tuition for a range of musical instruments.
