Music at Rodmersham

At Rodmersham School, music is highly valued. All children enjoy, engage and achieve well in music lessons at our school. A Music Specialist delivers weekly curriculum music lessons to all year groups, and we have many opportunities across the year to share our musical talents with friends and family and the wider public. Beginning in Term 6 of EYFS, all children will follow the bespoke ‘Music Cake’ theory, which introduces them to all the elements of music. This threads through each academic year so the children can build on their musical knowledge year after year to strengthen their understanding of how all the elements work together. This ensures continuity of understanding, aids progression and the retention of sticky knowledge. Each academic year includes a Workshop term where the children can learn about Samba Music, African Drumming or Junk Orchestra and then cement that knowledge with a practical workshop at the end of the term. Key Stage 2 attend the annual Young Voices concert at The O2 Arena in London. We celebrate at Rodmersham with Harvest, Easter and Christmas services at church, Easter and Christmas Concerts, Nativity performances for Year R and 1 and a Year 6 Production and Leaver’s Assembly. Music provider ‘Pitch Perfect’ provides lessons for our children in drumming, guitar, piano and violin, should they choose to take lessons. We are an Arts Award Centre for Music, and all children were awarded their ‘Discover’ Arts Award for Music in 2021. We are also a Music Mark member school, which is only awarded when a school can ensure (and prove!) that they are providing a broad and balanced music curriculum for all pupils.
