Music @ East Park
Music is a really important part of life at East Park. Singing is celebrated throughout the school during assemblies and with our school choir. We currently have a choir of approximately 45 children and they perform as school concerts as well as annual events such as Young Voices, Singing in the rain and Summer sing.
Children from year 2-6 receive an ‘All around the world’ music unit that allows them to learn about music from around the world, alongside music technology elements such as Garage Band. We have our very own Sound Cloud account which allows children and parents to listen to their child’s composition from home.
From year 4 children have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument from one of our specialist peripatetic teachers. We are able to offer woodwind, brass and string instrumental session. On average 40 % of children are currently learning to play a musical instrument between year 4-6.
As a whole school this comes together to create our very own East Park orchestra!
