“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent” Victor Hugo
Our Music Curriculum
Our music curriculum gives children the opportunity to use a variety of different starting points for listening to and composing their own music. The creative elements of the curriculum are embedded in all we do at Coopers Lane. To support the music curriculum some year groups have the opportunity to learn instruments as a class with our music tutors.
Year 2: Recorders
Year 3: Ukulele
Year 5: Steel Pans
We have singing sessions once a week in our key stages, with further opportunities to sing as a choir at events such as Lewisham Live Voices. The children also learn songs that link with whole school projects such as Sign 2 Sing and Sports Relief.
We are really lucky at Coopers Lane to have a specialist dance and music studio where some of the children’s music and dance lessons take place during the school day and after school.
Extra Curricular Music Opportunities
From Year 2 children have the opportunity to learn the violin, drums and piano in small groups or on a one to one basis with our peripatetic tutors.
We also have a steel pan club open to children from Year 5 and 6.
We have regular concerts and performances for the children to take part in our summer term music concert.
