Music

At Thorpe Acre Junior School, we ‚Äčaim to create a passion for music in our children that will stay with them in their future lives.  We aim to ensure that music is an inspiring and engaging experience that enables every child to develop their musical potential while gaining a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres.  

 

We are committed to ensuring children understand the value; importance‚Äč and impact of music to their own and others’ lives and wellbeing.  We endeavour to provide a variety of musical experiences through a curriculum which develops learning, improves knowledge and promotes pupil well-being through building up the confidence of all children.  Music can impact the way that children feel, think and act and we want music to encourage the body and mind to work together, develop motor skills and allow self-expression. 

 

These skills are developed in a number of ways including, but not limited to: Peripatetic teachers, following the Leicestershire Music Hub music scheme of work, performances throughout the year, singing assemblies, enrichment days and community events.
