At Meadow View, our music curriculum aims to provide all pupils with a high quality music education which engages and inspires children to develop a life-long love of music, increases their self-confidence, creativity and imagination, and provides opportunities for self-expression and a sense of personal achievement.
Children participate in a wide range of activities to develop their talents in all aspects of music including rhythm work, instrumental skills, composition, singing and appreciation.
We believe that opportunities for children to play in small groups or ensemble also helps to foster essential life skills such as co-operation, mutual support, self-discipline and commitment.
As well as wanting music lessons to be fun and inspiring, we want the children develop their own appreciation of music with the opportunities we provide as a school such as: listening and appraising a new song from all genres in every music lesson, and singing assemblies where children are introduced to new music which they learn to sing.
Music plays an important role in helping children to feel part of a community. We organise and collaborate in projects to enable children to share their musical skills at different events both inside and outside of school.
