At Rodings Primary School, our intention is to inspire every one of our children to become a musician, engage with and enjoy music.

We aim to provide a broad, enjoyable and unique experience for children who will learn to listen to, appreciate, perform, create and evaluate a variety of pieces of music.

Children will experiment with a wide variety of percussion instruments from Reception onwards and are encouraged to compose their own music in small groups using both the indoor and outdoor learning environment.

By the end of Year 6, our intention is that they are confident at playing tunes on a variety of percussion instruments and that they enjoy performing for parents and visitors as part of services and productions.

Singing to a high standard is an important part of our life at Rodings Primary School and brings us together as a community, our aim being that the children develop a wide repertoire of songs that should enrich them throughout their lives.

Pupils from Rodings Primary School regularly participate and perform at the O2 arena as part of 'Young Voices'. Children are also given the opportunity of having 1 to 1 lessons in a range of instruments including drums, piano and guitar
