A message from Laura Keeley, Music Teacher at Wickham Primary School (WPS).
I am proud to be a part of the students learning journey in music at WPS. I hope to provide many amazing opportunities to the students. Music should be enriching and provide special and unique experiences to the students that they will remember for years to come!
Music at Wickham Primary School
Students at Wickham Primary School have a one-hour music lesson every week which allows students to participate in a range of music activities including singing games and playing a range of instruments.
In year 5 and year 6, students will have the opportunity to learn the ukulele during their classroom music lesson. All upper-school students are welcome to join the Wickham Primary School Choir which meets to rehearse every Monday lunchtime from 1.00 to 1.30.
