We aim to provide an enjoyable, creative environment for music making and to develop the children’s skills of listening and auditory discrimination. Children are encouraged to experiment with as many sound sources as possible and to record and listen to their own work. We hope to develop co-operation and decision making through musical activities, to encourage the children to create and perform with confidence, and to develop musical skills, concepts and vocabulary. Traditional, modern and multi-cultural music form part of our studies. The school takes advantage of the excellent music service provided by the Local Authority and visiting teachers enhance the teaching team two days a week.
Extra-curricular activities include an opportunity to learn to play a brass or string instrument at Key Stage 2. A charge is made for pupils who wish to receive instrument teaching from a visiting tutor.
