Music at Mayfield
We love to celebrate music at Mayfield!
There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy music at Mayfield, both within the curriculum and as additional activities.
Ms Walker, our Music Co-ordinator, leads whole class music lessons which include the three fundamentals of music; listening and appraising, performing and composing. In whole class lessons the children explore these fundamentals of music through singing, and playing both the recorder and glockenspiel. Children begin to learn to read musical notation in year 3 and build upon this throughout their time in KS2.
Being able to read musical notation is a wonderful skill, and can be transferred to any instrument if your child wishes to move on and learn another instrument outside of the classroom.
We offer additional music lessons at Mayfield in the following instruments:
We have three wonderful peripatetic music teachers from the Ealing Music Service who deliver these additional lessons each week (at an additional charge).
During our Friday assembly some of our young musicians accompany birthday singing.
Our wonderful choir takes part in local performances with other schools in the borough. Watch out for news of their performances in the Choir tab.
