Music Curriculum at Blakehill

At Blakehill, we provide all pupils with a range of opportunities to become involved in Music.

All classes receive a weekly music lesson which provide teaching and learning activities with schemes of work linked to the National Curriculum 2014. Years 5 and 6 are taught to play tuned instruments including guitar and ukulele by a Music Specialist which results in pupils performing to the whole school in assembly. Each year group chooses a composer or musician to study throughout the year.

School Choir

We are very proud of our school choir who participate in many local and national events.  We are enthusiastic participants of the Young Voices Choir and have performed at several annual University Graduation Ceremonies.

The choir also joins other schools within our Local Schools Partnership to  perform songs as part of the Big Sing Production. We have developed strong links within the local community and support St Cuthbert’s Walking Nativity ensemble, performing carols in the church at Christmas time. In addition to this, the choir actively seek opportunities to perform, singing at local nursing homes, shopping centres, Summer Fairs and even weddings!

Links with other schools and organisations

The school regularly welcomes enhanced opportunities to engage with music making at all levels (i.e school prom/large scale events) and has developed links with local Secondary Schools.
