At St John's Church of England Infant School we aim to ensure that all children develop a passion for Music. Through our Music Curriculum we aim to help children develop a love for different genres of music and a desire to develop their learning further. This inspires our pupils and enhances their ability and confidence to perform. Children are given regular opportunites to use a range of instruments to develop fundamental skills for future learning within the subject.
At our school, it is our intent to enable children to develop and explore musical skills with increasing understanding and enjoyment. We encourage children to work and play with others in a range of group situations and develop the way children perform their skills for different activities and performances. We demonstrate to our pupils how to improve the quality and control of their performance as well as teaching children to recognise and describe how their bodies feel when listening to and playing music. We develop our pupils’ enjoyment and passion for Music through creative and imaginative activities. We embed an understanding in children of how to develop their abilities and how to evaluate their own success. We strive to establish a high profile of Music throughout our school and celebrate the musical achievements of our pupils both in and out of school.
