Music

Music is taught throughout the school as a class subject and in cross-curricular way. The aim is to develop each child's musical potential giving opportunities for self-expression and creativity.

Instrumental tuition is available to children who wish to take advantage of it. The children are taught individually or in small groups and parents are required to meet the cost.

We have a thriving choir who take part in concerts throughout the year. Singing is a key component of the curriculum at Sennen.

During the year there are a variety of musical performances in assemblies and at events such as Lafrowda in St Just. At Christmas there is a big production for Key Stage 2 and a Nativity play for Key Stage 1 In addition, children perform at school and the Church at various times.

Our music curriculum aims to ensure pupils develop:
  • Appreciation and appraisal of music from different genres and cultures;
  • Performing including singing skills;
  • Composition skills.
