Music is taught discretely and through cross curricular activities. It supports and inspires creativity, self-expression and supports children to connect with others. Children listen to music from different periods, styles, genres and traditions. They develop skills of listening, composition, performance, review and evaluation. Sensory materials and props bring music to life. Children are encouraged to work together and make music in groups. They work towards performance. Children are fortunate to work with specialist music teachers. They sing a range of familiar songs and develop their emotional responses to music. For many of our children, it is an important means of developing communication skills and the use of their voice. Our aim is to foster a lifelong love of music.
