Music is a key part of life at Caldecott School. All children are introduced to recorder in Y2 and keyboard in Y3 as part of their music curriculum lessons and then have the opportunity to continue if they wish.
Throughout the year children have the opportunity to take part in numerous musical activities and in 2016 has seen the performing arts continue to flourish at Caldecott with opportunities for our children to perform and take part in music, dance and drama every month this year. In case you missed any of the events, these have been the highlights:
