Intent statement

 

Music At BJS, we believe that all children have the opportunity to experience, achieve and enjoy the subject of music. Learning and teaching in music is not only based around the four areas of the National Curriculum (listening, composing, performing and evaluating) but also forms part of our whole school crosscurricular approach to learning and teaching. We value music as a form of confidence building, expression, as a social subject and for enjoyment. It is also a way of artistically promoting our school and helps to unite the local community.

 

Implementation

 

All children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 have either weekly lessons of 30 minutes or bi-weekly for an hour. These lessons will either be taught by the class teacher or a specialist music teacher. In the lessons, children are provided with the opportunity to listen to a variety of genres of music, compose their own music and to play a wide variety of both tuned and un-tuned instruments. Instrumental lessons are also available (Piano, drums, guitar, singing, recorder, flute and violin) to all children for a small fee.

 

All BJS children have the opportunity to join the school choir, where we sing both familiar and unfamiliar songs and we often learn sign language alongside the singing. Our choir has taken part in many activities such as performing at The Temple Speech Rooms, our wonderful Christmas and Summer Fayres and has proudly entertained the older generations at some of our local homes for the elderly. Through these performances, the children gain memorable experiences that enhance their appreciation of music. If you would like any further information about music at BJS, then please contact Mrs Stevens (Music and Performance Lead) via the school office.
