At Manor Leas Infant School we aim for all children to develop an enjoyment and love of music. We currently use the Music Express scheme throughout our school to teach children key musical skills and nurture creativity through sound.
Children in Foundation Stage are encouraged to create their own music and listen to that of others including their friends. We are currently developing our outside classroom and are keen to make music an important part of this area.
Foundation Stage children also have the opportunity to join our after school music club where they enjoy singing, dancing, playing instruments and listening to music.
Year 2 children are able to join the school choir and enjoy learning songs of different styles.
But what do the children say?
EYFS: I like using the instruments and making my own music.
Year 1: I would like to write my own song.
Year 2: I like lively music best that we can dance along to.
Year 2:Using instruments is great because I enjoy being active.
