Music

 ‘A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.’

- Department for Education

 

Intent

At Perry Hall, we believe music can bring excitement to our lives, intertwining feelings of love and sympathy, teaching children about different emotions, as well as elements of musical theory. Through our weekly ‘Music of the Week’ sessions, children are given the opportunity to explore and engage with a range of musicians and musical styles, developing an understanding and appreciation of culture, taste and different genres. All children enjoy regular music sessions with our music specialist, covering a range of skills in singing and instrumental playing.

 

Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to understand rhythm and follow a beat. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. Children are taught and encouraged to use technical vocabulary including volume, pitch, beat and rhythm and associate these terms to a variety of music. Throughout their time at Perry Hall students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of instruments, including bells, ukulele and recorders. We are fortunate enough to have many peripatetic teachers who offer lessons in a wide range of instruments and during Year 4, the children are offered the chance to participate in ‘Band on the Run’, a series of lessons introducing them to the wonderful world of becoming an instrumentalist.  

 

Music is a subject for children to find enjoyment and thrive. At Perry Hall we strive to ensure we provide all children with the opportunities to achieve this.
