Music

Music is a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children.  It is a vehicle for personal expression, and it can play an important part in the personal development of people.  Music reflects the culture and society we live in, and so the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand the world they live in.  Besides being a creative and enjoyable activity, music can also be a highly academic and demanding subject, it also plays an important part in helping children feel part of a community.  We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills, to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music.

At Bishop Wood there are a number of extra curricular music activities arranged by the staff and friends of the school in their own time.  These take place during lunchtimes and are free to take part in.

Free Recorder Club – Mrs Bourke  runs the recorder club at lunchtimes.  Please see the School Clubs page for the latest information.

Bishop Wood Choir – The Choir at Bishop Wood has grown from strength to strength in the last few years singing at St Albans Abbey and at the O2 Arena in “Young Voices 2014 and 2018”.   Take a look at some photographs on the Gallery page.
