Music

Welcome to our page dedicated to music.

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.

 

EYFS/KS1 and KS2 Choirs

 

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:

 

  • Oare Primary School Harvest Festival in Oare Church
  • EYFS/KS1 Christmas Nativity Production
  • Cluster Choir - Marlborough Lights Switch On
  • Oare Primary School Christmas Carol Service in Oare Church
  • Choir singing at the Jubilee Centre
  • End of term carol singing
  • Yr 3/4 Easter Production
  • Oare Primary School Easter Service in Oare Church
  • Wiltshire Choir of the Year
  • School Summer Concert
  • Yr 5/6 End of Year Musical Production
  • Music for a Summer's Evening 

 

 

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.
