“Music education can help spark a child's imagination or ignite a lifetime of passion. When you provide a child with new worlds to explore and challenges to tackle, the possibilities are endless. Music education should not be a privilege for a lucky few, it should be a part of every child's world of possibility.”
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity that is shared by all. At Warden House Primary School, children receive a high-quality music education that engages and inspires all pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As a school, we value the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) benefits that our irresistible music curriculum provides for our children and value its importance in developing children’s musical creativity and curiosity. Music gives the children opportunities to be expressive, to have freedom to explore their creativity and to celebrate and share this with their local and wider community.
The role of Music at Warden House Primary School is key in developing and enriching our children’s understanding, appreciation and knowledge of the diversity of musical culture.
At Warden House Primary School we provide an irresistible musical experience for all children through the use of the "Kapow" curriculum for music. We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills, to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music.
Through our music curriculum pupils will:
Gain enjoyment, self-confidence and a sense of achievement through musical activities.
Be aware of, understand and respond appropriately to the rich variety of sounds in their environment and particularly to those organised arrangements of sounds called music.
Acquire musical skills and understanding of musical concepts through performing, composing and listening.
Develop their capacity to express ideas and feelings through the medium of sound.
Extra-curricular clubs such as our school choir and instrumental lessons enhance the curriculum on offer. Concerts and events take place regularly to further inspire pupils and develop their musical and cultural abilities.
