We want to encourage our children to develop thier musicality and musicianship. It is our intent to make music expressive, imaginative, energetic and fun. Pupils will progress each year and build on skills that they have been taught previously. They shall be encouraged to participate regardless of ability or gender and experiment with vocal and instrumental sounds. From the initial exploration of sounds and songs in the Foundation Stage, the music curriculum ensures children will sing, listen, play, compose, perform and evaluate. Children are taught technical terms as they progress and they are encouraged to use this vocabulary when discussing musical elements. We teach them to listen to and appreciate different forms of music. Children listen to a variety of composers across a range of historical periods. Our children further develop their musical skills during the first access scheme. They also have the opportunity to develop their talent through extra curricular clubs. Any child who is gifted and talented are signposted to these clubs. Our children all take part in productions and performances throughout the year which aims to develop their confidence and musical ability. We employ a talented musician to teach and work with our children in order to give them the best quality musical education.
