Children will develop confidence, communication, thinking and creative skills through playing, singing creating and performing music from a range of different genres and cultures. Skills used when listening to, playing and singing along with music are vital to early literacy as well as being shown to create neural connections which improve memory and co-ordination. Our music curriculum aims to develop self-esteem, self-discipline and cooperation which are the foundations of good learning across all areas. Children will participate in a wide range of activities to develop their talents in all aspects of music including rhythm work, instrumental skills, composition, singing and appreciation. Music plays an important role in helping children to feel part of a community. We organise and collaborate in projects to enable children to share their musical skills at different events both inside and outside of school. We hope that children will adopt an understanding and love of music which will endure past their years at our school.
