At Ellistown Primary School we make music learning a fun, enjoyable experience which will enable each child to reach their full musical potential. Music is a wonderful medium for facilitating communication between people of different cultures, ages and social backgrounds. Therefore, our intention is to provide opportunities for children to gain a strong understanding of what music is through listening, performing, composing, transcribing and evaluating across a wide variety of musical styles, cultures, traditions and historical periods.
Our music curriculum aims to develop all pupils’ musical skills, knowledge and talents through a rich and diverse range of musical opportunities. We provide a variety of musical experiences which includes the opportunity to perform in front of an audience both within and outside of school, and children will also have the opportunity to learn to play specific instruments.
Musical learning is embedded within music lessons as well as singing assemblies, plays and performances, celebrations, choirs, the learning of instruments and throughout extra-curricular opportunities. We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music in a variety of contexts.
