Music

 

 

 

MUSIC

 

 

The programmes of study that we follow are:

Foundation Stage: Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework. (Expressive Art & Design)
Key Stage 1: National Curriculum 2014

 

Subject Leader: Mrs R. Lee

 

“Music is our daily medicine which aids far better communication with others and ourselves.” (Evelyn Glennie OBE, percussionist)

 

At Blossomfield we endeavour to foster pupils’ sensitivity to, understanding and enjoyment of music through the progressive development of listening, performing and composing. Through music we also hope to promote attitudes and attributes that can support learning in other subject areas and that are needed for life and work, for example listening skills, the ability to concentrate, creativity, intuition, aesthetic sensitivity, perseverance, and self-confidence.
