Our Music Intent
We aim to deliver a high-quality Music curriculum which provides foundations for Music. Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. 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. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.

In Autumn Term 1 the whole school enjoyed watching a live music performance from the 'Wakefield Music Service Band'. The children learnt all about the different instruments and listened to some great music. What a fantastic opportunity, we really enjoyed it!
Autumn term 2 in key stage one is 'Shake Rattle and Roll'. Here are some lovely pictures of the children's work displayed in classrooms.
