Music allows children to creatively express themselves whilst taking inspiration from some of the greatest musicians from all cultures and traditions. At Newtown we intend children to be engaged and inspired from this balance of freedom of expression and appreciation of music from a range genres and cultures. Music is taught and enjoyed every week in class, and singing is taught once a week in assembly.
In addition, as part of our Newtown Creative Learning topics we invite local musicians into school once every three years, for a specific music week, to work with the children in school, showcasing their skills and enthusiasm for the area. The children then enjoy performing to their families at their own Prom in the Playground.
