Music at St Thomas'

The Arts at St Thomas' play an important role in our Creative Curriculum.  Each class has a music lesson each week using the Charanga music lessons.  The children learn about different types of music, the language & vocabulary of music as well as play instruments.

Castle class has weekly ukelele lessons with Adam from ESCC Music Service and we have peripatetic music teachers in school who teach violin and guitar.

In March 2022, Castle class took part in the Hastings Music Festival, performing at the White Rock Theatre.  They came 2nd out of 8 classes and won a medal, a certificate and £100 for the school!!

On October 19th 2022, Castle Class had the wonderful opportunity to watch 'The Marriage of Figaro' at Glyndebourne as part of the Opera Performances for Schools.  

Our Music Subject Leader is Mrs Dee Rampling.
