“ If you cannot teach me to fly – teach me to sing” James Barrie (author of “Peter Pan”)
At Ladycross we promote a balanced and inspirational music curriculum. The study of music is crucial in developing imagination, creativity and confidence, skills that are invaluable for life.
The teaching of music at Ladycross Infant School is based upon the EYFS curriculum and The National curriculum.
The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic, music, dance, painting are all important elements that help us to enable our children to achieve their full potential to become rounded human beings.
To ensure a clear structure for the teaching of Music across school a progression of skills is in place. This ensures that the children are given the opportunity to revisit and review previous learning and to build upon their existing musical skills so as to move their learning forward
Each key stage builds on what has gone before to ensure continued interest in the subject as well as acquiring new knowledge. The lessons we have suggested develop their techniques, skills and joy in music. Children should also know how music contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation. We have suggested a specific series of lessons for each year group, which will offer structure and narrative.
Music is loved by teachers and pupils across school. Teachers have high expectations and more quality evidence can be presented in a variety of ways. All children use technical vocabulary accurately and pupils are expected to know and to apply their musical skills. Children improve their knowledge about the world around them through musc. Children will become more confident in analyzing their work and giving their opinion on their own music and the music of others . Children show competences in improving their resilience and perseverance by continually evaluating and improving their work. All children in school can speak confidently about their learning in music.
I can not imagine my life if I didn't have a music program in my school. Beyonce ( Singer and musician )
