Children have many opportunities to develop their musical skills during curriculum lessons, through extra-curricular activities and through instrument lessons. 


Our music curriculum is supported by the online scheme Charanga.  It provides a progressive range of resources which support lessons ensuring a practical, child-led approach to musical learning. Each theme combines Listening and Appraising, Musical Activities, Singing, Playing instruments, Improvisation, Composition and Performing. 


Our School Choir meets on a Tuesday morning at 8.15am and it is lovely to start the day with singing. We have children from Year 2 to Year 6 in the choir and they are enjoying learning a variety of songs.

So far the choir have performed at:

  • Our Harvest Festival
  • Our Christmas Fair where they raised £27!
  • Parish Praise at Whixley where they sang three Christmas Songs
  • Green Hammerton Crib Service
  • Our Christmas Assembly

We are looking forward to performing at Young Voices, in Sheffield Arena on Monday 15th January 2018.

Recorder Groups

Our recorder group started in September 2017. We are using the Red Hot Recorder Scheme by Sarah Watts which includes lovely pieces with a jazzy accompaniment.

Peripatetic Music Lessons

We would love to increase the number of children learning instruments and can now offer violin, keyboard, guitar, woodwind and brass lessons. 

WOOFYT Project (Wooden One-octave Organ For Young Technologists)

Class 4 were invited to attend a workshop as part of the WOOFYT project which combines Music, Science & Technology in a fun activity where a large group of players make music on a single instrument. They created and controlled air flow and pressure and found out how pumps and valves work. To play a simple tune, everyone had to work together so it required great team work!
