Music Week – 18th to 21st May 2020
Even though this was Week 9 of Lock Down, our curriculum learning carried on with a special Music Week. Here are some examples of fantastic work by pupils:
The music curriculum is led and managed by two specialist and experienced music teachers alongside the help, support and great enthusiasm of all our staff.
We provide children with exciting opportunities to participate in a number of performances in school as well as large scale concerts outside of school. Visits to concerts are booked and we try to ensure that all our pupils get as many opportunities as possible to attend live music concerts. Our pupils get the opportunities to attend opera performances at the Royal Opera House and orchestral concerts at the Barbican and the Royal Festival Hall. Pupils also perform in Enfield Music Partnership festivals.
Every child will experience one or more of the following during their time at Prince of Wales Primary:
- Ghanaian Kpanalogo drumming
- Steel pans
- Recorders (Descant and Treble)
In addition to this piano, keyboard and violin are taught and lessons are available in school. Lesson on other instruments can be arranged if requested. Enrichment activities include recorders and choir.
Regular and frequent concerts and performances are held at school by our pupils to which parents are invited.
We have a music therapist coming in once a week to work with pupils.
We participate in borough music activities such as partnership singing festivals.
Singing assemblies are held weekly – one for years 1-2 and one for years 3-6 – where children are taught about singing techniques and are given the opportunity to sing together.
