Music is an extremely important subject for all children to learn, and can lead to better brain development, increase in human connection and boost creativity.
The National Curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music
- Learn to sing, create and compose music
- Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated
The integral nature of music and the learner creates a rich palette from which a student may access fundamental abilities such as: achievement, self-confidence, interaction with and awareness of others and self-reflection.
At Aycliffe Village Primary & Nursery Primary School, it is our intention to first and foremost help children feel that they are musical and to develop a life-long love of music. We focus on developing the skills, knowledge and understanding that children need in order to become confident performers, composers and listeners. The children at our school will develop the musical skills of singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, improvising and composing music, listening and responding to music. Children are also taught to respect and appreciate music from all traditions and communities.
