Our intent with our music curriculum is to build a musical curriculum that develops confidence, improved well-being and results in the acquisition of knowledge.
At Welland Academy, we make music enjoyable and engaging. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build a range of skills and understanding in musicality. We offer the students opportunities to learn new instruments where they are encouraged to learn musical discipline and perform in solo and ensemble pieces. We endeavour to nurture and develop children’s confidence to express themselves through music. Where possible, we have started to perform musically to the wider community. Our singing assemblies teach children about the structure and organisation of music and to appreciate different forms of music as well as linking them to the core school values. In addition, we teach the children how to work with others to compose, perform and appraise music.
We link closely with Peterborough Music Hub and have peripitetic teachers delivering the teaching of some instruments to our Year 5 and 6 pupils.
