Belmont Primary School

  • 'Belmont has always struck the right balance between academia and learning for life.'

  • 'A school that doesn't just excel at the academics but provides so much more, whether its music lessons and the lunchtime choir, or the 350 spaces in clubs each week, the football and netball teams or the shows that raise the roof of the top hall.'

Music

 

Music is seen as an integral part of the curriculum at Belmont.  We believe music plays an important role in children’s personal development, helping children to work together and feel part of a community, as well as providing a vehicle for personal expression. We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, and develop the skills to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms. All children have access to specialist music activities at Belmont as part of the curriculum as well as through extra-curricular activities. 

 

The School has a strong singing tradition. Each year group receives blocks of singing sessions with our singing teacher related to their class topics, often in preparation for shows and presentations to parents. 

 

All children are taught the recorder in Year 3, through the Hounslow Music Service, as part of the fully funded Wider Opportunities programme.  A group were chosen to play at the Hounslow Music Festival in 2013 at the Royal Festival Hall.  Music tuition may also be arranged with one of the peripatetic teachers who visit the School, (please follow the link).

 

Class music lessons, which include composition and music appreciation as well as singing are linked to the theme of the class topic.
