We seek to develop in each child a lifelong appreciation and enjoyment of music.
In Mossley Primary School, we are fortunate to have a full time music teacher and a separate music room. Each class receives one 40 minute lesson per week with the music teacher and during this time children have the opportunity to perform and compose music using a range of different instruments, as well as listening and appraising. Children also have one 30 minute Praise Assembly session per week where children practise their singing.
There are many musical groups within the school, such as accordians, handbells and recorders, and specialist teachers come in to teach string, brass, wind and percussion instruments.
The children have many chances to perform both inside and outside school in festivals and a variety of other performances. Junior and Senior Choirs are a feature of our school, and along with the various music groups, perform at both Christmas and Spring events.
