Music Learning Journey
At Godley we believe that music is an integral and important part of school life.
We employ a professional musician, Mr Halligan, who delivers lessons across the curriculum in order to provide the most effective music tuition possible.
Music lessons are themed and school topics are integrated into classroom sessions. The children have worked on a number of music projects, click here to see a video of year 5’s excellent performance of Waterfall which was part of the 'Go with the flow' theme.
Every child at Godley engages in quality music education from their entry until the end of KS2 in Year 6. In the Early Years, music is incorporated consistently into daily routines and is used to enhance teaching of the core curriculum in addition to being taught as a stand-alone subject. In KS1 and KS2, pupils participate in weekly music assemblies and a one hour curriculum music lesson with Mr Halligan.
Every child in Year 3 then has instrumental lessons and lessons continue into Years 4,5 and 6. Godley also offers subsidised and free tuition using the Pupil Premium funding.
In addition to our work in the classroom, we also run a large number of ensembles.
• Godley Noise - School Band
• Keyboard Group
• Singing Group
• Guitar Group
• Drums/Percussion Group
• Ukulele Ensemble
Each ensemble has the opportunity to perform in a number of varied environments from Assemblies at school to local, large venues like Community Centres and the Town Hall.
Children have the opportunity to enjoy musical experiences through listening, singing, playing tuned and untuned percussion, stringed instruments and music technology. We employ a specialist music teacher to teach music and give pupils the best opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in this area of the curriculum.
