At Robert Arkenstall we believe that Music is an important part of the curriculum and we aim to enthuse and inspire the children by providing a wide range of musical experience. We use music from many different cultures to expand children's appreciation and knowledge of the huge variety of instruments available for music-making (including their own voices).
A variety of instrumental lessons are also available in school, taught by outside specialists - please ask at school reception if your child is interested.
The school choir takes part in a variety of concerts and recitals - this changes from year to year. Any child interested in being part of the choir should see Mrs Maynard. Choir also has it's own page - you can find it under 'Our Learning'.
Here is a small selection of work from some of our classes in their music lessons, choir and assemblies.
