Welcome to the Music page of our website.

Music is an exciting and universal language that allows children to use one of the highest forms of creativity. Music should engage and inspire children to develop a love of music and their talents as a musician. With the music teaching at Parkdale Primary School we aim to increase the children's self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.

 

We are very fortunate at Parkdale to have two fantastic Music specialists, who teach the majority of our music lessons across the school.  Mrs Keighery teaches Music to Years 1 and 4 and Years 5 and 6 learn to play the ukulele with Mr Hatherley.  

Every Thursday we have a singing assembly with Mr Hatherley. We enjoy our singing assembly and often learn some popular songs which link to our school learning values and the British values.

 

We have lots happening at Parkdale to raise the profile of music and to importantly, provide opportunities for the children to flourish in music!

Here are just a few to list:

  • On Mondays after school, we have 'Parkdale's Rock Band' which is led by a member of the Inspire music team and allows the children to explore different instruments and composing tracks as a team.
  • On Wednesdays after school, we have a large group guitar lesson. The children have started to learn to play popular tracks using their skills developed so far. 
  • On Thursdays we have Parkdale's choir led by Mr Hatherley.

We are continuously looking to provide lots of opportunities for the children to explore their musical creativity, showcase their skills and develop a love for music. Some of the regular events include: school concerts, the choir sing in the local community and regularly perform at our school fayres. More recently, we have planned for the choir to take part in a big singing event called 'Young Voices'. This event provides a real purpose for the choir to learn songs to perform them with many other schools across the country! We are very excited for this event!
