In Music lessons at Conway the children experiment with voice, instruments and composition and become familiar with a variety of musical forms, genres, instruments and styles. We follow the Music Express musical curriculum for our lessons throughout the school which introduces children to a range of different genres. Our lessons are active and exciting- we clap along to the rhythm and beat of the music, discuss our opinions on it as a class and identify the different instruments we can hear in each piece.
Our musical skills will also be developed in other areas of the curriculum- studying song lyrics and rhythmic poetry in reading lessons, exploring sound in science and creating electronic music in computing.
Children at Conway benefit from a specialist music tutors from the Greenwich Music Hub. They focus their work in Year 3 where the children have the opportunity to learn to play two instruments across the year: recorder and ukulele. During these lessons children will learn how to play these instruments and read, write and understand musical notation.
