At Barley Croft we aim make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences, which aims to build up the confidence of all children. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music. We will encourage children to build new skills and knowledge in a progressive and systematic way which allows children to link their learning. Also, we teach the children how to work with others to compose music innovatively and perform for an audience. It is important to develop children’s mental health and wellbeing through raising self-esteem and valuing their contributions, which can be done through music. We will use music to help teach children to celebrate their own and others’ cultural similarities and differences.
