Our Music curriculum at East Acton Primary School enable children to :
Perform, listen to review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
Learn to sing and to use their voices to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, using technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of music excellence.
Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
All children have weekly music lessons where they use a range of musical instruments and are exposed to a wide genre of music. Children in Year 3 learn to play the Ukulele. They receive lessons from a specialist teacher from the Ealing Music Service. Our students also have the opportunity to have 1:1 or small group piano and guitar lessons. They sing in weekly KS1 and KS2 singing assemblies and have the opportunity to join the East Acton School choir.
We were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity for children to learn how to play instruments and join together with friends to form their very own rock band.
A musician came in and showed us all the instruments and some children were given the opportunity to play these instruments. This session had a huge impact on the children. Many students expressed in interest in music as a career and lots have joined the school choir as a result!
Below you will find links to videos of songs that we have learnt/are learning in our weekly singing assemblies.
Every Monday, after school, there is choir practice for children in Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 at East Acton Primary School. We have lots of opportunities planned for the children to sing to the rest of the school and sing out at various venues throughout the year.
What are you waiting for? If you're in Key Stage Two and you have a voice that you want others to hear, sign up to choir! Come and sing with us!
