Music

Subject Leader: Mrs Blackburn supported by Mrs Wass

Music skills are developed across all age groups from EYFS to Year 6. The children are encouraged to compose, listen, discuss and perform with a variety of audiences in mind. They learn to appreciate music of different styles, cultures and times, and to use their voices and a range of instruments as expressive media.

We believe a love of and appreciation of music gained in childhood lasts a lifetime and that making music with others is a social, joyful and spiritual experience. We therefore, encourage children to understand and create music but above all, to find enjoyment within this particular curriculum area. Whole school singing takes place regularly during collective worships and church services throughout the year.

Children are encouraged to express themselves in creative ways. Drama workshops are often used to support work in Literacy. Our school productions are memorable moments of the school year. Each year group has the opportunity to perform in these with: Nativity in EYFS and KS1; a spring performance for Years 3 and 4 and the summer musical for Years 5 and 6.
