Music is taught discretely each week and children learn to develop essential skills that can be used in all areas of their learning. Children listen to and respond creatively to a variety of music that spans genres, time and cultures.
Throughout Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children experience playing tuned and un-tuned instruments and singing within large and smaller groups. Children are given opportunities to communicate ideas creatively when composing and performing using the elements of music which they are taught. Throughout this year we are having visits from the Luton Music Service. Each Year group will benefit from a weekly Singing Assembly for a term. We have had workshops linked to topics such as ‘Keeping Healthy’ and ‘People who help us’. We have enjoyed an African Drumming workshop in Year 1.
Each Spring term, the school participate in ‘sign2sing’, where the whole school sing and sign all at the same time. This is in support of ‘The Deaf Health Charity’ and helps to raise awareness of people with hearing difficulties.
