Because we understand the importance of widening our children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural experiences, we use a radio station to expose them to a wide range of music genres.
Each week pupils listen to a selected artist/band/musician at lunchtime through our radio station. The music is piped into the school hall and onto the playground. Class teachers explain to children who the artist is and from which time period it comes. Then in our celebration assembly we discuss what the children thought of the music.
Year 6 pupils are interviewed for the position of resident DJ each year. They introduce tracks and share interesting facts about the chosen music.
This half term the children will be listening to chosen artists from the 50s. These artists are:
Nat King Cole
At the end of each half term, the children will also get to vote on their favourite artist and to discuss why they particularly favoured that artist with their teachers and peers.
