At New Cangle school we teach music using the Kapow music scheme. This provides teachers with half termly five-lesson units, each of which combines the strands of performing, listening, composing, music history and the inter-related dimensions of music (pitch, duration, tempo, timbre, structure, texture and dynamics). The Kapow scheme is used from EYFS to Year six ensures full National Curriculum coverage.
In Year Four the children have a whole class guitar lesson weekly led by a specialist peripatetic guitar teacher.
Mrs Barton and Mrs Harvey lead a school choir which children can join the choir from Year Four onwards. We are proud to have taken several groups to the O2 to sing with thousands of other children in the Young Voices concerts at the O2 in London, which is an absolutely amazing experience for all involved. Members of the choir have also contributed to the REACH online Christmas cheer music extravaganza!

As a friendly community school we encourage musical parents to come in and share their talents with us so please do get in contact if you would like to do so.
Music is led by Mrs Barton, who leads the school choir and loves going to listen live music.
