In our school, the children participate in a wide range of practical music making activities, developing their skills as listeners, performers and composers.
They learn to analyse and appreciate music from different historical eras, cultures and genres. Through listening, singing or playing instruments, they are encouraged to enjoy music as a shared experience and to respond expressively in different ways. We hope to instil a love of music in all our children and to provide many opportunities for them to explore their particular musical interests, both in the classroom and through involvement in extra-curricular musical activities, such as choir, or learning to play an orchestral instrument.
Every year group is engaged in exploring a ‘big musical question’ and finding interesting ways to demonstrate their learning. Meanwhile, each term, two year groups work towards a musical performance to entertain the whole school and invite their families to come and watch. The aim is for all children to develop their musicality whilst having fun!
