Subject: Music

At De Lacy, we believe that music can be a vehicle for expressive and creative learning. We are passionate about developing children’s musical knowledge and skills and offer many opportunities for children to develop their talents in all aspects of music including composition, singing and performance. Assemblies are used to enhance the children’s listening and appraising skills. In Key Stage 2, children access the First Access Music Programme and develop their musical skills through learning to play an instrument. Our children have the opportunity to take part in additional music lessons through the Wakefield Music Service. All children participate in our bespoke performance events where their natural talents are used to great effect. Finally, children in Key Stage 2 are invited to join the school choir who take part in the Young Voices concert and at events within the community.
