We aim to make music a fun learning experience which engages and inspire pupils to develop a love of music as well as their musical talents, thus increasing self-confidence, creativity and a sense of achievement.
With the help of a specialist music teacher, each year group has a specially planned unit of work linked to the national curriculum.
During lessons children develop an ability to listen to, and appreciate a wide variety of music, whilst also having the opportunities to discuss and express ideas and feelings. They explore a range of musical elements, for example: pitch, tempo and dynamics and are provided with the opportunity to compose music using a variety of different musical instruments. Each unit of work also culminates with a year group performance where parents are invited to share and enjoy their children’s incredible musical accomplishments.
As well as this, all pupils in Year 2 are taught how to play the harmonica whilst pupils in Year 4 are provided with the opportunity to learn the ukulele. The school also offers additional musical clubs to pupils including choir and guitar lessons.
