Music is an important part of the curriculum at Oare Primary School. All children are taught curriculum music in their class groups, with EYFS/KS1 being taught by Mrs Saunders and KS2 taught by Mrs Osborn. We promote active listening and the children are introduced to a wide range of music drawn from different periods.
We are lucky enough to have lots of teachers who are experienced musicians at Oare Primary School. Weekly choir rehearsals involve all pupils, with Mrs McGregor taking the younger pupils and Mrs Osborn directing the KS2 choir.
Performance opportunities include:
In addition to the music lessons that children have as part of the curriculum, the school also provides opportunities for pupils to undertake musical instrument tuition.
Contact details of any parent whose child is interested in receiving lessons will be passed on to the relevant teacher. Please speak to Mrs Osborn if you require any more information or wish to be contacted by one of our instrumental teachers.
In most cases, children will require their own instrument and charges are made termly. Details of the amount of practice recommended will be given by the instrumental teacher.
We are delighted to present a celebration of the music-making at Oare C of E Primary School at 6.30pm on Tuesday 7th February. This concert involves the talents of the whole school with singing items from each class, as well as soloists taking their moment in the spotlight.
The PTA are kindly providing refreshments before the concert from 6pm onwards. We look forward to seeing as many of you at this event as possible.
We are pleased to be participating in the Primary Cluster Choir who will be singing at this event. Seven keen singers from Oare Primary School are joining forces with children from other local primary schools to sing to celebrate the switching on of the Christmas Lights on Marlborough High Street.
Other Cluster Music Events are being planned, so watch this space for details.
