At Mayespark Primary School, we believe that music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity.
A high-quality music education will engage and inspire children to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Our Music curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to appreciate, critique and compose music.
Across the school, children have been asked about their music lessons. Here are some of their answers:
"Music can make everyone happy by singing and dancing." EYFS pupil
"Music makes me smile. I like to make lots of sounds and play different instruments." Year 1 pupil
"I enjoy the sound of music and listening to the different sounds that music makes." Year 3 pupil
"Using different instruments makes a really enjoyable music lesson." Year 4 pupil
"Learning and having fun at the same time will make a music lesson successful." Year 5 pupil
"I think learning about music is important because it is a form of art and a way of expression." Year 6 pupil
