Music at Spurcroft

Our intent for Music

At Spurcroft school, we aim to equip our children with skills for 21st century, both academic and creative. We want the knowledge and skills that they learn in Music lessons to stay with each child for their whole life.

Through composing and performing, confident learners are developed. Through listening to a wide range of music and developing their own viewpoints and opinions, we give pupils a wide musical knowledge. Music promotes teamwork and responsibility towards each other.  High expectations in music ensure that all children are taught the skills of reading music and given the opportunities to use musical instruments creatively.


Teaching pulse and rhythm skills

Writing music is a key part of music lessons. Due to the current global circumstances we haven't been able to use the music room or as many instruments as we are used to.

Teaching pulse and rhythm

The skill of recognising a pulse or beat is vital in more advanced music skills such as composition. Here we are practising keeping the pulse and overlaying the rhythm.


Choir is open to any child between year 1 and 6.  We rehearse in Toad Hall on Monday afternoons after school until 4.30.  Children in KS2 are invited to take part in St Nicolas' Save the Children Carol Concert, the Junior Music Festival in March and Young Voices which takes place at the O2 Arena usually in January.  In addition all children perform in the Winter Concert and the much larger Summer concert. You will also see Choir performing at school events such as the Easter Service and the KS2 Carol Service.
