Subject Leaders - Mrs Harding (Music) and Miss Khan (Performing Arts)


Music at Forefield Junior School is currently being taught by our Junior Jam teachers. All children are enjoying this excellent opportunity to listen and appraise, improvise, compose and perform every week. A wide range of instruments and skills have been taught already this year, from Boomwhackers to Samba drums.

September 2022

From September 2022, we will be following 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.
