Music

Central to our school ethos, music can help to support language and creative development in all children. Divided into music and choir, the children receive specialist teaching which aims to work within the Topic studied with the Classroom Teacher. Through a range of clubs and extra-curricular activities our choir regularly appears in grand performances, such as our production of Little Red Riding Hood, the Christmas Concert, Universe Best Song, a Community Performance on Beetle Avenue and at the State Ballet and Opera Theatre. In addition, Classroom teachers often use music and singing in their lessons to support learning.

Our music lessons reflect a broad and balanced curriculum appropriate to children’s age and development.
