The aim of music at Normanby Primary School is for children to gain a firm understanding of what music is through singing, listening, playing, and appraising music. This is embedded in classroom activities as well as weekly singing assemblies, performances, the learning of instruments and the joining of our extra-curricular musical activities. The elements of music are taught so that children can use musical language to dissect and appreciate music across a wide variety of historical periods. Students are given opportunities to learn how to play an instrument, from all four main instrument groups of wind, strings, percussion and keyboards. These are offered by additional specialist services such as Music works and Tees Valley Music.
