Music

Music

At Mareham Le Fen CofE Primary School, our intent is that 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, and playing instruments, children learn about the structure and organisation of music and how to listen and respond to each other. We also teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music. Children develop descriptive language skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent different feelings, emotions and narratives. We also teach technical vocabulary such as volume, pitch, beat and rhythm and encourage children to discuss music using these terms.
