Our aim is that the children all have fun and become happy, competent music makers throughout their time at Willowcroft Community School.
We hope to achieve this through the children having regular music lessons throughout the year. As well as their music lessons, the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children also perform separate Christmas plays in December and the Key Stage 2 children perform a Carol Concert for parents. Year 5 and 6's also perform an end of year musical. In the past, these have included Grease and Bugsy Malone, which the children enjoyed learning immensely.
Underpinning the music at Willowcroft are extra-curricular clubs. These include, Choir and Sing Up Leaders. Our choir is made up of 40 children from Foundation Stage to Year 6 and they sing weekly, learning a range of genres in order to broaden their repertoire. The choir perform at school events and will be also singing in the community as well. Sing Up Leaders are children from Year 5 and 6, who once a week at lunchtime, take small groups of children and sing songs with them or teach them new songs.
Willowcroft has gained the Sing Up Silver Award and is currently working towards the Sing Up Gold Award.
In December, the children visited 'The Meadows' in order to sing their Nativity songs to the elderly residents. This was a opportunity that both the children and residents enjoyed.
