In music we encourage children to listen to and enjoy music of different styles, and to be able to appreciate the main elements of music including rhythm, pitch and composition. Teachers use 'Charanga' to support their planning which is a living cloud-based resource that brings together great music, modern pedagogy and the latest educational technology. Every year, Year 3 attend 'Festival of voices' and the children in Year 5 learn to play the violin. Instrumental tuition is available. However, this is an optional activity and is paid for on a termly basis by parents of participating children.
