At the Free School we feel very strongly that music is an essential component of school life. Please read to to discover the opportunites that are available for your child at Hatcham Temple Grove Free School.
Music in Reception
Children will receive music teaching from when they first start in reception. This will be based around singing, with an early introduction to simple percussion instruments, as well as exposure to specific pieces such as Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.
Music in Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2)
Lessons become more formal and are usually around one hour per week, delivered by a music specialist. Children will learn more about composers and begin to learn to compose through experimentation with a range of tuned percussion and other instruments.
Music in Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6)
As the children move to KS2, the musical life of the school grows and develops. Alongside all of the children receiving weekly music lessons and singing assemblies taught by specialists, the Free School will offer an extensive instumental programme which will offer opportunities to all while ensuring that children can make as much progress as possible, especially those with particular talents and aptitudes.
