Music at Broadheath
We are passionate about music at Broadheath and it is an important part of the school’s creative curriculum. The children enjoy weekly music lessons, learning a wide range of musical skills. We cover the Programmes of Study from the National Curriculum, ensuring children all learn about the following:
- Listening to and appraising music from a range of genres
- Composing and improvising
- Exploring how music is created using the inter-related dimensions of music (pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and notation)
In addition to our regular music lessons, we work closely with Trafford Music Service (TMS) to provide further musical development for our pupils. We subscribe to the Wider Opportunities initiative which provides whole class instrument tuition to years 1, 3 and 5, culminating in a concert for parents and carers. It is a wonderful scheme and is thoroughly enjoyed by children and teachers alike!
Singing is a very important part of the music curriculum at Broadheath and each key stage has a weekly singing assembly. We also have a very active Key Stage 2 Choir, run throughout the year with performances both at school and in the wider community. The choir has recently performed at both the Bridgewater Hall and the Stoller Hall in Manchester.
Trafford Music Service offer individual and small group instrumental lessons at Broadheath on a range of instruments.
