Reception Classes

In Reception, our children sing lots of times everyday...  they absolutely love singing! They sing number, phonics, French, action and topic songs in their classrooms. They also take part in our Infant School's weekly 'Singing Practice,' during which they also listen to music and learn facts about famous composers. 


Our children also enjoy playing instruments and creating their own sound effects in response to a stimulus, such as walking through a jungle, playing in the snow or illustrating different events in a story. They have a weekly lesson with our specialist music teacher, where they learn how to play instruments, they copy and improvise rhythms and learn about tempo, dynamics, pulse and pitch. 


Our children also enjoy dancing and moving to music and respond to different stimuli such as music, stories and exciting objects. They always enjoy performing in groups or by themselves.
