WELCOME TO NEWFIELD MUSIC
There are many musical and talented students across both Lower and Upper School here at Newfield. We have a busy music department with lots of extra-curricular activities taking place throughout the year to support learning and personal development. It was a successful end to KS3 for Mr. Douglas and Mr. Handley’s Class. They all successfully completed their Level 1 Bronze or Entry Level 3 Explore Arts Award in Music. Well done everyone.
This half term, pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 are learning conducting. They are also extending their ukulele playing from the summer term.
Year 6 pupils are working towards the Explore Arts Award in Music. This will involve them experiencing and taking part in a range of performing arts activities throughout this autumn term.
Year 7 and 8 are learning to play basic pop drumbeats on the drum kit and composing their own rhythms. Year 8 students are also taking part in the Year 11 Leadership workshops where they are enjoying learning to compose music using Song Maker.
Year 9 students are currently working on developing their instrumental skills, playing both solo and within an ensemble.
Year 10 music students are studying the GCSE in Music course. They have made a good start and are currently working towards a band performance in October/November.
Year 11 music students are working on either the Level 2 Silver Arts Award in Music and/or the GCSE Music course. Currently one of our Year 11 students is leading an extra-curricular project on music technology as part of his leadership unit.
Students across upper and lower school can take instrumental lessons in addition to learning keyboard, drums/percussion and singing in class. Some of our older children are also studying a second instrument. Currently we have additional piano, guitar, drums and singing lessons available. Should you require advice on purchasing or loaning an instrument please make contact with school.
Arrangements for the Christmas show will be confirmed after half term. We look forward to seeing you soon.
