Welcome to our music page! Every child at The Mount engages in quality music education from the start of school until the end of KS2 in Year 6. Music is an incredibly important part in everybody's life, from listening to your favourite artists, to singing out loud and playing instruments. This year, Year 2 are learning to play the glockenspiel, Year 3 are learning to play the recorder, Year 4 are learning the violins and Year 5 are learning to play the Ukulele. Year 4 and 5 are taught by specialist music teachers, and everyone has their own instrument!
Every 'Tunesday' we have our music assembly, where children sing a range of songs together. They rehearse to perform in our Harvest Festival and Christmas Concerts. The children have the opportunity to listen to new artists at the start of music assemblies and now appreciate a range of different genres, including jazz, classical and rock.
In September 2018 the Mount School Choir was launched! Children from years 1 to 6 are invited to sing together every Tuesday lunchtime. They have been singing a variety of popular songs including music from the Greatest Showman, Moana and Trolls.
Below is a medley of our school song plus some of our Harvest Festival songs, as well as a video of the children singing Don't Stop Believin' by Journey.
We hope you enjoy it!
