Music

Our rationale for Music:

We are passionate about music at the school. Children will experience a range of different musical opportunities throughout their 7 year journey at the school, including a music curriculum that teaches skills in listening to and responding to music, making connections between genres, artists and instruments, participation and composition, and an understanding of the basics behind musical notation and orchestration. Children will be taught how to listen deeply, consider the purpose and history behind music, the emotions and feelings of composers and artists that create music, and how to use this in their own pieces of music. Children will acquire a progressive level of skills in playing a recorder, and be given opportunity to learn how to play a wide range of instruments from peripatetic teacher and wider curriculum experiences. Children will be given opportunity to develop their voice, participate in local and national competitions and events, for the choir, band and smaller ensembles, combining music with drama and art for affect.
