Music plays a big part in life at Leigh Central. We pride ourselves on the fact that every child will get the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument before they leave Leigh Central. Alongside all our curriculum opportuinities we also have a specialist music teachers who come into school to teach guitar, violin, flute and piano. We celebrate our musical talents through our termly music concerts and also sing weekly in music assemblies and in class.
Each Tuesday Darran Glover (a Music Specialist from the Wigan Music Service) comes into school to teach a number of year groups alongside their class teacher. This is a great opportunity for use to learn from the skills and expertise of a real musician.
Each Wednesday our Year 4 pupils are involved in the Wider horizons Project they all have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. This year all the children will learn a range of percussion instruments. In the Autumn term they learnt how to play a xylophone and performed 3 great compositions within a special celebration assembly.
Our youngest children in Reception have also had the opportunity to explore their creative and musical talents. They have been involved in a 6 week project called the 'Chime Project' where Imelda Shirley from Wigan's Music Service came in to teach the children a range of listening games and percusion songs which focused on rhythm and rhyme.
