Why is Music important?
Music is a powerful universal language which promotes unity and celebrates difference. It enables us to process and express our emotions and fuels our imagination. Music is important in developing individual skill, discipline, focus and memory. Whether we are singing, playing, or listening, we develop our aural discrimination through Music, which is an important element of communication and literacy too. Singing songs, chants and listening to nursery rhymes are a great starting point in our EYFS.
When is Music taught?
Music is taught on a Monday by our specialist teacher Sam Morris. The lessons are for 40 minutes each week. Music is at the heart of our Liturgical celebrations in school in preparation for Christmas and Easter.
