Music - What the children will learn?

 At Harworth Church of England Academy children enjoy Music in a variety ways and have recently started using a new website to enhance our provision we provide for our pupils. Not only this we enjoy being together to sing in our worship and celebration assemblies as we know that music is something that evokes all sorts of emotions for everyone.
