Music

Welcome to Norwood's Music page! 

At Norwood we strive to offer a high-quality music education that engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talents as musicians and singers. Through the curriculum and many extra-curricular activities all pupils are given opportunities to participate in musical activities; as individuals, a whole class and as a whole school. Last year the children were lucky enough to record a whole school CD called 'Now That's What I Call Norwood'. The final recordings are attached at the bottom of this page, so please feel free to have a listen!

Currently as part of the Music curriculum, children in Year 3 learn African Drumming on Djembe drums, Year 4 are learning how to play woodwind and brass instruments and some children in Years 5 and 6 are part of the 'Norwood Band'. In the Summer term, Year 2 will also begin to start African drumming and take part in rhythmic workshops with the brilliant James Martin. 

In addition to this, Norwood offer some excellent extra-curricular music based after school clubs giving children the chance to show their love of music and singing. Please speak to Miss Fisher, Mrs Taylor or Mrs Thorpe if you would like to be involved in a KS1 or KS2 singing club.

Today all children in 4M showcased what they have learnt on their woodwind and brass instruments over the last term. It was fantastic to see so many enthusiastic children showing great enjoyment and participation! Well done 4M we hope you enjoyed learning your instruments. Good luck to all those children who have joined our Norwood Band. We look forward to watching you progress!

This evening 'Norwood Songbirds' Christmas Singing Club took part in the Churchtown Christmas festival in which they performed some of their favourite Christmas songs to the community. They brought fun, happiness and Christmas glee to the wonderful audience there to support them. Well done Norwood, it was freezing cold and you still gave 110% as always!

Wednesday 12th December

This afternoon, the children in 3B had their 'African Drumming' performance to show parents and peers the fantastic enjoyment and participation that they have undertaken over the last term. Children have learnt a variety of African rhythms and songs using a variety of different untuned percussion instruments including Djembe drums. It was a joy to watch the children perform what they had learnt with such enthusiasm. Well done 3B! If you didn't get the opportunity to see the children perform, please see the videos at the bottom of the page, they will truly get you grooving! 

 

 

Monday 10th December

This afternoon the 'Norwood Songbirds' went to visit the local community centre to spread their Christmas cheer. The audience participation was excellent and all involved had a fantastic afternoon singing well known Christmas songs and carols. The audience particularly enjoyed 'The 12 Days of Christmas'! Well done once again Norwood!

"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!"
