Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
Music at Knights Enham is taught weekly. In the Foundation Stage, children are encouraged to explore instruments and sounds. Music is taught discreetly, but instruments are freely available, both inside and outside, in Discovery time. In Key Stage 1, each has specific learning objectives to cover termly. This ensures full coverage of the Music curriculum.
Weekly singing assemblies also take place; songs are learnt and shared to parents in our Stars of the Week celebration. We also offer a Singing Club after school.
