What do we teach in Music at Bridge? 



Each week, we have been listening to different types of music and learning how to respond and appreciate different genres. 


"I enjoyed listening to Night on a Bare Mountain because some parts of the song were calm and some parts were more energetic. It made me feel excited because it felt as if something exciting was going to happen." (Krupa, 6SR) 


Year 5 have been learning how to play the glockenspiel. They have enjoyed learning to play an instrument and reading notes.

"We've been learning to play the Glocks with Mr. Newnham and we have learnt to play different notes. My favourite bit was when we got to play the Glocks and try to hit different notes." (Umar, 5KK)

Glockenspiel Performance


In December there was a great glockenspiel concert by Ms Kaur’s class.  They had been learning to play these fabulous percussion instruments with Mr Patel, who comes to the school every week from Leicestershire Arts. The children had learned lots of different tunes.  Everyone in the hall really enjoyed the performance.  Mr Patel had even trained the children to take a proper bow together at the end of the show.

“We had to set up the special stands for the glockenspiels and the music before we started playing.”

"I really enjoyed playing in front of the other classes. I want to do it again."
