Music at Christ Church CE Primary School
At Christ Church we aim for all children to experience a broad, balanced and rewarding music education, and to develop their confidence and enthusiasm through experiencing performance, listening, appraisal and evaluation across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
Music is a powerful focus for creative energy as it stimulates and guides the imagination. It is a vital part of any primary curriculum, underpinning many aspects of learning, such as the ability to listen carefully, to explore feelings and responses to stimuli, to appraise, to take risks, and to work as part of a team.
All children will learn to sing, to create and compose music on their own and with others, to have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and to use technology appropriately.
We use a progressive skill-based approach to ensure the children reach their full potential. Visits and visitors are used to enhance learning at different points throughout the school journey.
