MUSIC

Music is a foundation subject in the National Curriculum and is part of the Expressive Arts and Design  Area of Learning of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Our aim is to engage and inspire children to develop a love of music and their talents as musicians and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Children engage in a wide range of activities including singing, playing tuned and untuned percussion instruments, listening to a range of music from different times and cultures and experimenting with composition. Music skills are further developed through our cross-curricular planning.

Children also have the opportunity to be involved in Drama activities which incorporate Music and Dance. Year Two children have the opportunity to join the Choir and Hand Bells Club. We endeavour to provide the opportunity for children to attend musical performances and also be involved in performances such as the Christmas Concert and other productions at least once a year.

Musicians are regularly invited into school to provide workshops and performances to enhance children's learning.
