Music is a specialist subject taught by a full-time music specialist in a fully equipped music room. Starting right down at the bottom of the school with nursery, music lessons are taught on a fortnightly basis to every child up to Year 6. Key stage 2 lessons are an hour long, while Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 get half hour lessons.

Music lessons cover a broad range of skills – most of which are transferable:

  • Voice projection, articulation, solo singing
  • Listening and appraising
  • Developing memory and “thinking” voice
  • Sharing and taking turns
  • Composing and improvising
  • Reading and writing music
  • Group ensemble work
  • Performing in front of class/school/parents

Art Matters Publicity Workshop 2020

Children from Year 3 upwards took part in a publicity workshop for the Art Matters poster art UEL yesterday. The Art Matters Exhibition runs from 1st July until 17th July at the University of East London (Docklands Campus), and will feature artwork from schools all across Newham. In the workshop, children used inks, watercolours, markers and paint to design their own organic forms upon the surface of a box which would be part of a larger sculpture when arranged with the work of over 50 other students.

Pots in RB

RB made their first thumb pots in the Art Room. They worked individually at their tables rolling a sphere, making a hole and then pinching the pot into shape. They were very excited by the feel and texture of the clay. Once fired in the kiln, the children glazed their pots and added fingerprints for decoration.
