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 pupils in Year 4 and Year 6, free of charge. In Year 3 and 5 the children learn music with their class teacher.
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.
Our Year 6 pupils will be performing and composing music with an expert musician to create their own Rock 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).
Our singing assembly is every Thursday where the children gain skills in harmonies and singing in rounds.
