Music plays an important part in the life of Amport School and, we believe, is a strength of the school, particularly singing. As part of our music curriculum,usually all children from Year 5 onwards are taught to play the descant recorder and to read music. As this is part of the music curriculum rather than a club, it is taught during lesson time by a class teacher. We often take part in Key Stage 1 and 2 Recorder Festivals and Vocal Festivals. 


In KS2, children have the optional opportunity to learn an orchestral instrument for which there is a charge. Peripatetic teachers deliver lessons on stringed, woodwind and brass  instruments along with keyboard and guitar. Older children are given the opportunity to join the Andover Area Ensembles run by Hampshire Music Service.  


Children from Willow and Rowan Classes put on a production in the summer term for their families.  Our last production in 2023 was  Rockbottom and we have performed in the past: Mystery at Magpie Manor; Three Cheers for Mrs Butler!; Aladdin Trouble; Cinderella Rockerfella; Hoodwinked; The Emerald Crown;The Blue Crystal; Alice the Musical and Wind in the Willows to name just a few. All children in KS2 are involved in the production with Year 6 children taking the lead roles.


KS1 and Year R usually perform a nativity play every Christmas. This year, we enjoyed a performance of The Inn-spectors and in the past we have performed Its A Baby!; Born In A Barn; Are we nearly there?; The Raggedy King; and Hey Ewe! All children are involved with Year 2 children taking the lead roles. 


At Christmas, the children lead a Lessons and Carols service where a mix of traditional and contemporary carols are sung. At other services throughout the year, children enjoy learning and singing a variety of hymns and songs.
