Newton Primary School

Rooted in love and care


The Music curriculum provides a balanced programme of musical activities. During the early years there is an emphasis on rhythmic and melodic activities which consist mainly of singing and the use of percussion instruments.


As the children progress through the school, they are given the opportunity to extend their musical experiences. This might be by taking part in musical dramas composing their own music, or by having instrumental lessons. The school currently offers piano and guitar lessons.


All children listen to a variety of music from different periods and cultures. Music is also integrated into topic work where appropriate and we also have a school choir.


Our children are also given the opportunity to perform at the O2 arena along with the Young Voices choir of over 8000 youngsters. A spectacle to behold!
