Subject Leaders - Mrs Harding (Music) and Miss Khan (Performing Arts)
At Forefield Juniors, we follow the Kapow Primary Scheme. There are four units in each year group, which will be taught throughout the year. The instrumental units are whole-class glockenspiel lessons, where children will learn to read and write using standard musical notation. All units include listening, composing, performing, the history of music and the inter-related dimensions of music.
