Welcome to Music at Woodlands
'Where words fail, Music speaks!'
The teaching of music is based upon the fact that it is a creative and social art to be enjoyed. At Woodlands, children have the opportunity to enjoy musical experiences through listening, singing, movement and dance and by playing tuned and un-tuned percussion.

Year 2/3/4 Choir
On a Wednesday evening, between 3.15-4pm, Mrs Dutton and Mr Barnes run a choir for children in Year 2,3 or 4. This year we are delighted to have 58 children joining the choir, which makes a fantastic 'wall of sound.' Over the coming weeks, we will broaden our song book, learning all sorts of different songs with meanings! We already have a few bookings for our choir to perform. Firstly at Astbury Lodge, around christmas time, filling the residents with christmas festivities. Secondly, we will be attending the annual Ignite Festival at the Civic Hall, alongside other schools, to showcase our talents!
Wednesday 19th September
This week we learnt the song 'Sing.' This song was written by Gary Barlow, and was performed by a number of artists assembled by Barlow from across The Commonwealth, to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth. Please practice this song for next week, and we will record it for everyone to hear next week. Mrs Dutton has attached the link and song lyrics below.
Year 5/6 Choir
On a Monday evening, 3.15-4pm, Mr Harley is running choir for our Year 5/6 children. This is a new choir and we are very excited to share their beautiful singing with you through videos, sound recording and of course performances!
Year 5/6 Signing Choir
We are delighted this year to offer our 5/6 children the opportunity to join a signing choir run by Mrs Mensah. This will be held on a Friday lunchtime. What a fabulous opportunity to be part of something amazing!
At Woodlands we offer peripatetic Guitar lessons for KS2 children, with Mr Dan Cobley from The Alternative Guitar Teaching.
Mrs Dutton and Mr Barnes are really excited about our upcoming events and the children have been working really hard to learn a variety of songs to share with the local community.
