Music

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. At St. John’s we ensure we provide a high-quality music education which engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, whilst increasing their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As our children 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.

 

The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all children:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
WORLD THINKING DAY- FRIDAY 22ND FEBRUARY Some of our children wore their uniforms with pride in school today to celebrate World Thinking Day on the 22nd Feburary during the half term holiday. The day focuses on International Friendship and encourages the children to think about guiding and scouting all over the world.
