Music at Great Linford Primary School.
At our school we believe that it is important to foster creativity and imagination in all children. This is done through a variety of ways; singing, musical composition, playing instruments, and listening to a wide variety of music and understanding how music has developed through time.
Each week we have a whole school singing assembly which brings our school community together through music. Please listen to some of our favourite songs we have sung so far as a school. Our current song is: It's a New Year!
We also encourage the learning of an instrument to help our musical experiences and creativity. We have two choirs within school that children can join. We offer a varied musical experience to allow children to experience and make their own music.
If your child would be interested in specialist peripatetic lessons please contact the office for a form. We also work with the Milton Keynes Music Hub providing links and opportunities for our children to further develop their creative and musical skills. Find out more

Out of the Ark! Music Project
KS2 Music Festival
For the past two terms all of the children at Great Linford Primary School have been involved with the Out of the Ark singing project providing high quality singing resources.
The Out of the Ark music player has allowed all classes to have access to many different songs that link with their Project or other subjects. Watch out for our children showcasing their singing within their class/year group assemblies!
We are lucky to continue with this project until the end of the summer term, when there will be an Out of the Ark Celebration concert where family and friends can also join in the event!
Save the Date! Wednesday 20th June 2018.
We would like to keep you updated with what our children are learning and rehearsing within their peripatetic sessions. Children work hard to practice and will perform at the Christmas and Summer Fayres.
Our peripatetic music lessons are provided by the Milton Keynes Music Hub. For more information on music lessons please contact the office.
Primary Music Festivals
The string and festival was a great success!
All of the children had a great time learning to perform in front of audience and received feedback from the judges as well as a certificate for taking part.
Maia and Shanice on Cello:
"A strong tone and overall very good."
Dean and Kizzy on Violin "A simple piece effective together - well done!"
We are excited to announce that we have purchased some new recorders in the school. Each year group will have a term using the recorders and being taught to read music notes and performance skills.
Year 5 have been learning the B-Bar Blues!
Have a listen to some of our class performing:
BBC Ten Pieces Project
We are delighted to be a part of BBC Ten Pieces Project this half term. The is a part of the BBC's Biggest Weekend, celebrating classical music and creative responses.

We are looking forward to children being creative and we will be having an assembly to showcase these.
