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 Silver 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.
In Year R, the children are introduced to the musical elements and learn to play simple percussion instruments. In Year 1 and Year 2, music is taught by a specialist music teacher who continues to develop knowledge of musical elements, composition and listening skills linked to the term's topics. In Year 2, the children have the opportunity to learn ukulele and samba drums.
