Learning about music and having the opportunity to play musical instruments and make music together is a vital part of a rich and rounded education. It has also been proven that music plays a key role in brain development. This is because it helps with the nurturing of language, motor skills, emotional intelligence and collaboration skills.
Wooden Hill delivers a high-quality music education using the Kapow scheme of learning that engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians in order to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Weekly singing assemblies enable the children to grow their love of music through shared performance, build a greater sense of community within school and develop links to our PSHE curriculum.
Our children are given the opportunity to listen to music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians in order to broaden their musical horizons and encourage them to be open-minded about the music they listen to. Through performance, they learn to sing and to use their voices; to create and compose music on their own and with others when learning a musical instrument and use technology appropriately to record and evaluate their musical ideas.
