Music is a powerful tool which can inspire and touch children of all ages, due to its unique quality of being a universal language. Music is a way of communicating and conveying a variety of emotions and commands children to develop their personal expression in a creative and enjoyable way. It provides a means of developing evaluation and appraisal skills and is easily assessable to children of all abilities, developing children’s self-confidence and inspiring them to have a love of music. During their journey of learning music at Woodchurch CE Primary School, children will be provided with opportunities to create, play, perform and enjoy music through a variety of means. Children are encouraged to appreciate a wide variety of music and musical forms, studying different cultures in order to understand the diverse world we live in.
At Woodchurch CE Primary School we make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up the confidence of all children. Our School follows the National Curriculum as the basis for our planning. Many of our lessons are based on the ‘Charanga Music School’ scheme of work where there are opportunities for children to develop their skills and knowledge and children are increasingly challenged as they move through the school. Music is often closely linked to the topic each class is studying, enabling children to become fully immersed with their learning.
