At Haveley hey it is our intention to make music as interactive, creative, enjoyable and inclusive learning experience for all our pupils. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up confidence and self-expression. Inspire creativity and help them to develop their musical potential. Our teaching focus on developing the children’s ability to understand pulse and rhythm and follow beat. Through singing songs children learn about structure and organisation of music as well as having fun. We teach them to listen and to appreciate music from different cultures and genres of music. They develop descriptive language skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent different feelings, emotions and narratives. Musical vocabulary is taught such as volume, pitch, beat and rhythm, pulse tempo and note values and we encourage children to discuss using these terms.
