Our music curriculum aims to enrich the lives of our pupils by giving them the opportunity to perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions. Children are given the opportunity to create and compose music using their voices, instruments or technology to express their ideas and feelings. They also explore how music is created, produced and communicated, showing an understanding of musical vocabulary and noticing how music links to other curriculum subjects.
We use music to help children develop their understanding of mindfulness, keeping their mind and bodies healthy and thus contributing to an overall happier self. We sing a range of songs in assemblies and also share children’s musical achievements, celebrating a culturally diverse society and promoting tolerance and human dignity within creative expression.
