Music has an important role in our children's academic and social development and contributes to the all-inclusive ethos of our school. All children have an opportunity to learn a musical instrument; to make music with others; to learn to sing and receive high quality teaching within an exciting curriculum.
We nurture a love of Music and recognise the value of Music as a subject and the contribution it makes to enjoyment and enrichment as well as social benefits and having fun. We are a Gold Sing-Up school and encourage singing in all subject areas.
Each week we listen to a different composer and the children enjoy hearing a wide range of Musical genres, including music from other cultures. Through this the children gain a wide repertoire of musical knowledge.
Music is taught by a specialist music teacher who develops knowledge of musical elements, composition and listening skills linked to the term's topics including teaching them how to play simple percussion instruments. Throughout the year, the children have lots of opportunities to perform and show their musical skills.
