At Buxton Junior School, we believe it is important for pupils to have access to a rich range of musical opportunities. We are proud to provide the "Wider Opportunities Experience" for all pupils, free of charge.
In Year 3, the children take part in a creative project which includes performing, arranging and composing music using the Garage Band app on iPads. It also helps the development of ICT skills. In Year 4 all pupils learn how to play a string instrument. Pupils develop their musical skills in a creative way, participating in rhythm games and singing.
Year 5 pupils will take part in a creative project which includes performing, arranging and composing music using the Steel Pans. This is a great opportunity for pupils to find out about different cultures. Our Year 6 pupils will be performing and composing music in a Samba Band. This is an opportunity for pupils to engage with world percussion. We also have a wonderful school choir (free of charge) and there are opportunities to learn how to play woodwind and brass instruments (additional costs apply).
