At Lyminster Primary School, music gives children an opportunity to develop the three key values of the school: confidence, community and love of learning. Musicians of all abilities are taught to develop their skills through singing and playing instruments in order to have the confidence to perform in front of an audience. In Reception and Key Stage One, musical experiences are very much embedded into the daily life of the children in the classroom. Whether through singing songs and chanting rhymes in rhythmic patterns or moving and responding to recorded music, our intention is that children understand and respond to music physically before learning the more technical skills and vocabulary associated with musical learning. Through opportunities for individual instrumental tuition, learning an instrument in Key Stage Two and developing a knowledge of a range of styles and genres of music from across the world and from different times, children at Lyminster are given opportunities to love learning about the different aspects of music and how their own musical identity fits within this. Our music lessons throughout the school are taught through Charanga, an online scheme of fun and engaging music lessons which exposes the children to a huge and rich range of musical genres and experiences.
