At Girnhill Infant School we make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up the confidence of all children. Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to understand rhythm and follow a beat. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music. Children develop descriptive skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent different feelings and emotions. We also encourage children to discuss music in technical terms e.g. volume and pitch.
At Girnhill Infant school we also develop music through our extra-curricular activity. PerformanceWORX runs an after school club developing musicality in children. Further information about this after school club can be found on our extra curricular page.
