“Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.”
Music is a universal language which inspires creativity, self-expression and a strong sense of community. At St. Luke’s, children enjoy learning about music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians. This gives us the opportunity to promote and enrich our diversity and inclusivity.
Children not only learn about music but we hope that they will develop a love of music, thus becoming musicians who are able to share and perform using their new knowledge.
Our broad and balanced Music Curriculum enables children to develop their musical creativity through practical and exploratory opportunities. Children are encouraged to develop as performers, song makers, composers, improvisers and listeners.
Our curriculum links to National Curriculum expectations alongside the Charanga Scheme, it is progressive in its combination of accumulative as well as hierarchical knowledge and experiences.
Music at St. Luke’s is explored within classroom-based lessons, hands on sessions and also during whole school assemblies and class worship. Both children and staff enjoy every opportunity to lift voices in song and participate in hymn/singing practice each week and to also showcase this spirituality during our assembly times.
