All pupils in Year 3 receive regular Music lessons in which they acquire knowledge and skills of both how to be a great musician using several different instruments and appreciation of a variety of different genres of music. Pupils also have the opportunity to further their knowledge and skills through extra peripatetic instrumental teaching. 

"We've been learning all about Reggae music in Year 3. I didn't know anything about the genre before but I love it now! The song 'Three Little Birds' makes me feel happy and like everything will be alright!" - Maggie


"In choir, we've learned all about singing in harmony with each other, singing in a round and how to sing different parts as a group." - Laila, Class 2
