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.
We have a qualified Music Teacher who teaches music across all year groups. Children have regular singing sessions and enjoy being creative with instruments. They also learn about tempo, pitch, duration and structure of music.
There is a weekly singing club and the children perform at school assemblies and in the community at Christmas and other festivals.
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.
