Wider Opportunities


In Year 4, we are very privileged to offer a unique experience to the children and host weekly Wider Opportunities Music Lessons. Almost every Tuesday throughout Year 4, the children will learn to play a musical instrument, play games, sing songs and have a very musical, exciting year.


This year, Mr Rutter and Hannah from the Derbyshire Music Partnership will be back to teach our Year 4 children how to play a brass instrument. The children will either learn to play the trumpet or trombone and hopefully develop a love of music! The lessons are exciting, energetic, creative and a joy to be a part of!


Due to the current government guidelines and safety aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Derbyshire Music Partnership have fully risk assessed their lessons and have adjusted their lessons and teaching to ensure that we are staying safe. With this in mind, the Year 4 children will not receive or play a musical instrument until around Christmas time 2020. This is to ensure returned instruments are cleaned and quarantined and to also ensure that all safety aspects of the lessons have been considered, checked and verified.


Should you have any questions regarding these lessons, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
