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
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.
