Music at Headfield
Our Music Policy shares our Music curriculum in detail, including year group learning and knowledge and skills development through school.
Performances in class
In class, children perform every half term, performing songs they have learnt to other classes and their own compositions. This could be soli, solo, as part of a group or as a whole class.
Once a year, each class will perform a class assembly to the whole school and parents. In their assembly, children regularly either sing a song or dance to some music relevant to their topic.
The Christmas performance is given each year by Year 3, in which they tell the Christian story of Jesus' birth through drama and song to the whole school and parents.
Singing in the Community
Children have had the chance to sing at a local supermarket at Christmas and performed nasheeds at Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha.
This year, we are blessed to have Mrs Mahmood leading the Y3/4 Choir Club with Mrs Thorpe leading Y5/6 Choir Club. It's been great to see so many new faces joining these clubs.
Children attending those clubs have the opportunity to participate in a Young Voices concert singing as part of a 3000-strong choir inside the packed Sheffield Arena, watching celebrities performing on stage too.
The Easter performance is given each year by Year 4, in which they tell the Christian story of Jesus' death and resurrection through drama and song to the whole school and parents.
The Eid al-Fitr performance is given by Year 5 each year at the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Children perform nazms and songs to the whole school and parents.
Year 6 Performance
Year 6 perform a piece of classic literature as an end of year performance. They perform a lengthy piece of drama with songs and music to the whole school and parents.
Our choir has also performed at the inauguration of the Kirklees Mayor alongside our friends from a local infant school.
