Music is another popular subject at St Matthew's and the children love learning new songs from the Charanga scheme as well as singing in assemblies. All pupils in Year 5 are learning to play the flute and in Year 2 they learn the recorder. In addition, we use a range of tuned and untuned percussion instruments throughout the school. 60 pupils in Years 5 and 6 regularly take part in the 'Young Voices' event in London and we look forward to the return of the Samba Band in the summer term. Mr Warren, our Music Leader, has written songs for our school and the Performing Arts group, some of which are available on iTunes.
