Music Statement of Intent


We love to sing and make music together and it is our intent to make music a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience. Music brings us joy and children love to express themselves through music. We want to give all children musical opportunities so that they can feel happy, confident, relaxed and gain a sense of belonging and achievement. Through taking part in different activities children may participate as performers, listeners and composers, using a variety of styles to develop musical concepts. We like to give children the chance to move and dance to music so that they are able to build on motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. We feel that music can support learning in other subject areas as well as those that are needed for life and work; such as listening, creativity, perseverance, self-esteem and awareness of others.
