Developing a love of music and inspiring musicians increases childrens' confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Following the National Curriculum, music at Elmtree encourages children to perform, listen to and learn about songs, composers and musicians.
Children have regular singing sessions and enjoy being creative with instruments. They also learn about tempo, pitch, duration and structure of music.
Our children learn the skills of performance by taking part in class assemblies and whole school productions. The Year 2 children look forward to their end of year Leaver's Celebration.
We have an annual outing to the local pantomime where the children are exposed to dance, music and performing.
At Elmtree we use a teaching programme called Charanga, it is a world-leading music teaching and learning platform. Multi-award-winning music teaching and learning support with complete curricula, teaching resources, music technology, online learning, CPD and training
