At St Denys Infant School we believe that music is an important part of a child’s creative life that provides children with an alternative way to respond to feelings and the world. It is taught throughout the school both as a discreet weekly subject linked to topic plans and cross curricular. As music is a performing art, opportunities occur throughout the school year for both pupils and staff. Extra curricular activities include the school choir who perform to the school and audiences. Children have opportunities to perform in the Christmas plays, at St Denys Church and an inter class singing competition which was started in 2015.
This is held each term and is judged by members of the school governing body. There is a cup, shield for clear words and shield for actions that can be won by a class each half term.
Winners of the Singing competition:
Theme: Christmas and winter songs
Singing Cup - Beech class, Year 2
