Music

At Godstone Primary and Nursery School, we are committed to providing all children with a high-quality music education which will engage and inspire them to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians beyond their time with us.  Music is a practical, creative subject that enhances the lives and learning of all children, whilst providing them with a unique way of communicating and the opportunity for personal expression.  With music reflecting culture and society, the teaching and learning we provide enables children to better understand the world in which they live.

We ensure to provide effective delivery of a music curriculum that is accessible to all of our children.  Music lessons are taught once a week by the class teachers.  As the children move through the school, they are provided with opportunities to secure their understanding of what music is through listening, appraising, singing, playing, analysing and composing across a variety of musical styles.

We also organise and collaborate in projects to enable the children to share their musical skills and talents at different events both inside and outside of school.  The children enjoy taking part in events such as The Tandridge Singing Picnic and Young Voices.  By engaging children in these musical experiences, they are able to develop skills, attitudes and attributes that support their learning across the curriculum as well as developing life skills such as listening skills, co-operation, creativity, self-confidence and a sensitivity towards others.
