At South Bank Primary School we enjoy singing together in our school assemblies. We have our special singing assembly once a week. In these assemblies we learn hymns and songs that relate to our Key Stage topics.
We all have the opportunity to work with Tees Valley Music Service (TVMS) throughout the school year. This means that not only do we get to use the instruments that we have in school but we also get to use those brought to us by TVMS.
What have we been doing with TVMS?
In EYFS and KS1 we have been learning new songs and have accompanied them with some of our percussion instruments.
In KS2 the Year 5s and 6s have been learning Taiko Drumming and Years 3 and 4 have been learning how to play the recorder. In the spring term Support Bases 1 and 2 learned new songs and accompanied them with instruments and in the summer term Support Base 3 has been learning how to play African Drums. We will also be learning about music throughout history and how to compose our own music, which we can then perform to others.
