The Power of Music
As stated in the Department for Education's 2021 Model Music Curriculum, 'The power of music Music is all around us. It is the soundtrack to our lives. Music connects us through people and places in our ever-changing world. It is creative, collaborative, celebratory and challenging. In our schools, music can bring communities together through the shared endeavour of whole-school singing, ensemble playing, experimenting with the creative process and, through the love of listening to friends and fellow pupils, performing. The sheer joy of music making can feed the soul of a school community, enriching each student while strengthening the shared bonds of support and trust which make a great school.'
At Christ Church CofE Primary School, we aim to develop children’s confidence, communication, thinking and creative skills through playing, singing, creating and performing music. The recognise that the skills involved in playing and listening to music will also help learners develop the self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, creativity, and self-motivation necessary for success. Children will discover that music can be enjoyable and relaxing which will help reduce stress. We value the fact that all children will be able to experience a sense of achievement and pride.
