Music is a powerful language and as such is used as a form of communication across the globe, in a vast expanse of cultures- it evokes emotion, creates memories and ignites passion. At Badbury Park Primary, we wish for children to appreciate the language of music by learning about and appraising a variety of pieces of culturally diverse music from great composers which include festive pieces with words that inspire, communicate and educate. By implementing the ‘Music Express’ scheme, children experience learning to play an instrument and make progress by having the opportunity to play solo and as part of an assembly. In addition, they learn a subject specific vocabulary that enriches their knowledge of terminology. Through cross-curricular links that are purposeful, children create and evaluate compositions and enjoy singing as a collective group. Through our creative curriculum, the impact is that children gain an extensive array of skills and knowledge which in turn encourages a life-long love of music.
