'It has .. been proven that music plays a key role in brain development. This is because it helps with the nurturing of language, motor skills, emotional intelligence and collaboration skills.' Gov UK.
Our Music curriculum – delivered by Junior Jam – gives our children opportunities to think and act creatively, to express their emotions, to work collaboratively and to develop problem-solving skills that can be used in all areas of their learning and support the development of our 'Superskills'.
During their journey through school, children will learn and develop 3 core music skills - singing, songwriting and music theory. Their knowledge and expertise in these key areas will build year on year. In addition, they will learn the basics of a variety of different musical instruments eg Djembe (African drums) and steel pans ensuring they have an exciting, balanced musical curriculum.
Music is taught each week to Years 1-6 by our Junior Jam specialist music teacher, Mr Davies.
We also offer instrumental lessons through Rock Steady.
St Gregory's choir have participated in Young Voices concerts at the AO Arena (Manchester) for a number of years.
