Music

Music is an important part of the curriculum at Templemoor Infant and Nursery School. The children enjoy weekly music lessons following the Charanga Music Scheme. This is an online music scheme recommended by Trafford Music Service with lots of visual aids and interactive resources to support your children's learning about music. Take a look at our music curriculum overview in the separate Year group Long Term Curriculum Plans in the curriculum section of the website to find out what units your child will be covering in music this year.

We also work in close partnership with Trafford Music Service. A specialist instrumental teacher will teach music for a 10 week period assisted by the class teacher culminating in a concert for parents and carers. This year, the children have taken part in:

Reception – Little Voices

Year 1 – Ocarina

Year 2 - Ukulele

This is a fantastic opportunity and often leads to children taking up individual music lessons for that instrument. A link to Trafford Music Service can be found by clicking on the link below:

Children in Year 2 have the opportunity to learn to play the recorder with a peripatetic music teacher, Miss Smith. Recorder tuition (taught in small groups) is delivered at lunchtime and there is a charge for this. Any parent interested in tuition should see Mrs Merryman in the School Office.

Children in Years 1 and 2 also have the opportunity to take part in an after school singing club led by a specialist teacher from Trafford Music Service.

All children also take part in class assemblies where they learn and sing a range of songs. At Christmas, Early Years and Key Stage 1 children put on separate nativity plays with lots of singing and dancing!

To support our music teaching and provide engaging opportunities for our pupils, we invite guests into our school. Recently we have had visits from Moorlands School Orchestra and Key Strings.

We are delighted to have achieved the Music mark Award for our commitment to ensuring that children at Templemoor are able to access and engage with a high-quality music education.
