Through high quality teaching, our music lessons endeavour to develop children’s creativity, inspiring and engaging pupils to develop a love of music. We aim to increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement through lessons, as well as through school plays, performances and sharing assemblies throughout the year. They will use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and rhymes. Assemblies will also provide an opportunity to practise singing. Pupils will also be taught to play a variety of instruments musically and encouraged to play together in ensemble groups. There are opportunities to work in groups or individually, including with musical composition. We encourage listening to a wide range of music with concentration and understanding. Music lessons are often linked to Topics to make valuable links. Children who play instruments outside of school are given opportunities to demonstrate and share their skills in assemblies giving others something to aspire to. We are committed to using our musical skills and opportunities to support our local community, such as singing at the Church Hollyberry Fayre and Demenntia-friendly services.
