Music and Performing Arts
Music and the Performing Arts are highly valued at Harris Primary Academy Chafford Hundred. We believe music is something innate and magical for human beings. It enables groups of people to work and share together, through singing, performing or listening whilst also appreciating a wide variety of cultures and communities though their music.
All children are given the opportunity to experience a wide variety of high quality learning activities, which include:
- Performing and composing
- Listening and appraising
This is achieved by playing and singing, performing with others and arranging, listening to and appraising musical styles; further developing music as a means of self-expression and a source of pleasure.
Each class follows the Charangha scheme which provides all the requirements for Music in a primary school. Children have the opportunity to perform throughout the year in front of their peers and parents in the Christmas concerts and end of year performances
In addition we provide excellent enrichment activities for any interested pupils. In Year 2 children have the opportunity to learn recorders as a club at lunch times.
We have a thriving Choir for our Key stage 2 Pupils. The Choir perform in assemblies, at school functions and many other events in the local area. Every year, our Choir have the opportunity to perform at the O2 as part of The Young Voices.
