"Working together to achieve value and recognise the strengths of all"
Rothley Primary School offers children wonderful opportunities to develop their ability to listen and appreciate a wide variety of music from all around the world. The music making that they experience both individually and collectively develops their sense of group identity and togetherness. This is particularly noticeable in our weekly whole school singing assemblies.
At Rothley, children have the opportunity to learn an instrument as part of a whole class experience at some point in key stage 2. Music is taught weekly throughout the whole school by knowledgeable music teachers. In these lessons they are taught specific musical vocabulary and a range of different musical styles. They are taught to compose and perform and learn how music has developed in the western world from medieval music through to modern music.
Our school choir is hugely popular with our key stage 2 children. Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 have been working hard on a variety of Christmasy songs for the the festive season. Choir have plenty of opportunities through the year to showcase their vocal talents both within school and around our community.
We have peripatetic instrumental teachers that are able to come into school to teach children one-on-one or in small groups for those interested in learning a specific instrument like the guitar, drums, violin, flute, piano or vocals. At the end of every academic year we celebrate our schools musical talents in a music evening where the children have the opportunity to perform their instruments to an audience.
A Singing School
Singing plays a very important part in our collective worship assemblies every day. Have a listen to the whole school singing one of our Christian Values songs: Peace.
