Enriching the Curriculum
Music at Barlby
Music at Barlby Primary School is an important part of our everyday life.We have a focus on whole class instrumental music tuition, where children have the opportunity to learn the ukulele, recorder, ocarina, glockenspiel and djembe drums with a specialist music teacher.We are a strong singing school, with weekly singing assemblies and annual whole school musical productions taking place.Many children are involved in our extra-curricular musical programme which includes a school choir and a ukulele club. We have developed a flourishing partnership with the Tri-borough Music Hub which has enabled us to host instrumental music tuition with specialist musicians here at Barlby. Other opportunities for our pupils have included massed choir performances with professional orchestras at the Royal Albert Hall and the Kensington Town Hall.
We offer a broad curriculum at Barlby which enriches the children's experience and promotes a love of learning. We seek to recognise our children's talents.
At Barlby we offer a number of curriculum enrichment opportunities. These opportunities are not necessarily available to all children at the same time but as children move through the school they get the chance to take part in some of the things on offer.
Shakespeare School Festival
In the Autumn Term Year 6 get the opportunity to take part in this exciting and challenging festival, where they learn and perform a Shakespeare play. This is then performed in a London Theatre to hundreds of people!
The children in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 have the opportunity to join the choir which is run by our Music teacher Ms Khanna. Through this club the children learn a range of songs which are performed throughout the year to the rest of the school and the wider community.
We have employed a Sports Coach who teaches our PE and enters our children in sports events locally. Every Monday Craig and takes the children in Year 4, 5 and 6 for a local run.
After School Clubs
We offer a range of after school clubs that cover different areas of our curriculum such as: Science Club, Arts and Craft, Gymnastics and Football.
