Music Lessons   

All pupils at Cage Green enjoy a variety of music which is embedded in the curriculum and enriches their learning at all levels.

Children are taught to listen with concentration and with attention to detail in order to help them understand, appreciate and enjoy music as well as how to respond to it.

Regular class lessons and weekly singing assemblies develop singing, rhythmic and instrumental skills.

 

Reception, Year 1, 2 and the Phoenix Centre follow an exciting and very 'Hands on' music scheme 'Kindermusik' which links music and movement together, nurturing musical development in a fun and social way.

 

KS2 follow the 'Music Express' scheme which promotes a topic based, cross curricular approach to support children's learning in music from one year to the next ensuring consistent musical development.

 

In response the  government initiative promoting whole class instrumental teaching, all pupils receive instruction in at least one instrument while at Cage Green.

 

Year 6 perform at the London O2 in the annual 'Young Voices' concert which is the largest school choir concert in the world and a real special treat and experience to have in the final year at Cage Green.

 

Extra curricular musical opportunities such as:

 

- Guitar (Acoustic and Electric)
