Growing Lifelong Learners

Music

Music

 

At Stonehill School, we recognise the importance of Music across the curriculum and the role it has to play in promoting cultural diversity. The intent of the music curriculum at Stonehill is to provide all children with a range of opportunities to learn and experiment with sounds, rhythm and notation. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential as well as to learn something new. It is our role to inspire pupils through offering fun and engaging music lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all. We want our pupils to appreciate and know the benefits of listening to and playing music. Through our teaching of music, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and mindfulness skills through calm and reflective opportunities across the curriculum. Through skills learned, children will have opportunities to perform in large and small groups.

 

Aims:

1. To develop musically competent learners

2. To develop engaged learners

3. To develop reflective learners

4. To give children a range of opportunities to experiment with instruments.

 

We intend to do this by:

  • Ensuring all children have opportunities to experiment and practice a wide range of instruments both individually and with their peers.
  • Providing a stimulating, challenging and engaging learning environment with a range of activities.
  • Allowing children to review their learning by watching back videos and performances.
