Curriculum Map and Development Plan

Enabling composition at school and at home!

The School has recently invested in the O-Generator musical composition app, which can be accessed both at school and at home. We recently had a special guest (Marcel Pusey) to show Year 4 and 5 what it is all about!

'Music -emotions put to song or rhythm.'

'Music is life. That's why our hearts have beats.'
