Music at Lawn

Music is a language. Every culture makes music which speaks to us in different ways; it creates strong feelings, builds memories and ignites passion. All children at Lawn will appreciate the language of music by learning about and listening to the music of great composers. All children in foundation stage and KS1 learn about rhythm and pitch by singing songs and melodies. All children from year 2 to Year 6 are given lessons each week on the recorder, which gives them the opportunity to experiment with the sounds they make and to experience the joy of learning to play as a group, to listen to rhythm, read musical notations and to evaluate compositions. Children have the opportunity to attend the recorder club and learn how to play various melodies. Children are able to perform in assemblies and to parents. Each year the club attend The Gravesham Recorder Festival together with other schools in the Gravesend area.  Any child in KS2 can belong to the school choir. The choir sing at many community venues in the area.  Every two years the choir attends the Young Voices event at the O2.
