"Music is a unique form of communication that can change the way we feel, think and act.”


Music is an integral part of every day life at Wicor Primary School, and not just in lesson times. Classes often sing together in assemblies and listen to music in class. Many teachers use music in their classrooms to create a calm atmosphere, to accompany timed activities or as a shared experience.


Aims of Music


We encourage our children to experience music in many and varied ways: listening and responding; creating and composing; performing to others. As they do this, our aims are that they:



We are well equipped for music lessons and the children are taught to look after the instruments, but are also encouraged to make full use of them. We use Hampshire Music Services to deliver classes in either recorders and/or ukuleles to different year groups and we aim for 3 music performances throughout the year.


A high proportion of Wicor Primary School pupils pay for music lessons to enable them to learn to play specific instruments in small groups during the school day. We have a team of gifted and dedicated music teachers who teach drumming, keyboards guitar and violin. Choir club offers a chance for vocal harmony after school.

Hampshire Music Service worked with Year 5 in the Spring term 2023 to digitally remix the classic 'Never Gonna Give You Up' by Rick Astley using a web-based program called Bandlab. One of the class teachers said "I think that this was a great experience for all of the children, some showing a real talent (XXX was recognised by the mix artist for his talent and extra work that he has done at home) but also seeing XXX dancing to the music and being happy to stand up and be applauded by the class".
