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, every other year, we invite local musicians into school for a Music Week. The musicians showcase their instruments and style of music, sharing their enthusiasm and expertise. The children create their own performance as a class and share with parents at their own Prom in the Playground.
