At Manor Leas Infant School we aim for all children to develop an enjoyment and love of music. We use the Sing Up resources throughout our school to teach children key musical skills and nurture creativity through sound.
Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are encouraged to create their own music and listen to that of others including their friends. The children are able to access percussion instruments in their outdoor learning time and they can enhance their story telling with music and song.
Key Stage 1 children are able to join the school choir and enjoy learning songs of different styles and singing as a group.
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.
