Children at Newport are taught a range of instruments. All of Year Three are learning the ukulele this term. Year Four are learning the descant recorder until Christmas, and SCAMPS run guitar lessons after school on Fridays. After Christmas, both Y5 and Y6 will have a term of tuition using the recorder.

A representative of SCAMPS came into school during assembly, to show the children what they could learn in his lessons. The children thoroughly enjoyed his antics! If you would like your child to learn the guitar, please collect a form from the office in school.
Don't forget the music clubs available at school. There are two recorder clubs (beginner and intermediate) a glockenspiel club and a gospel choir.
A quick surf on the internet will give you a great deal of information about the connections between music and maths, or reading. To encourage your child to play a musical instrument or sing with a choir is a very good thing to do, if you want to help him or her make progress. Please contact Mrs. Austin via the school office if you would like your child to take up an instrument.
