Chilwell Croft Academy has had a tradition for many years of being a musical school and we are very proud of this.
We work closely with the Services for Education music staff to provide a variety of musical experiences for the children. These include; whole class instrument lessons in Key Stage Two; music and singing lessons in Key Stage One; separate Key Stage singing assemblies; a lunchtime choir club and elective instrument lessons after school. The singing assemblies are amazing to hear and watch, with all children engaged and children singing together, bringing a great sense of community to the school.
We provide different instruments for children to learn in the Key Stage Two whole class instrument lessons: a variety of brass instruments; violins and cellos. The children are also given the opportunity to perform in assemblies, sharing their learning with other children and parents.
In addition to this, the choir perform every year at the Symphony Hall in the summer term alongside many other primary school choirs and fantastic music ensembles, under the guidance of our fantastic vocal skills teacher Mrs Rebecca Prentice. This is an amazing experience for all involved!
