It is SO beautiful to read "whole school singing curriculum"! Happy new year, glorious Aureus!

Music

At Aureus Primary, we value the benefits that music teaching can bring to a child’s development. With music, comes an expression of individuality and creativity which will foster a child’s imagination and sense of self-worth. 

As a values-based school, we understand that music offers children the opportunity to learn and practise resilience, develop confidence, respect each other, listen and show courage. 

From Nursery to Year 6, our children will be exposed to a range of music from different cultures, celebrating diversity. Class songs and chants will provide a medium for storytelling using different actions and props. In Nursery and Reception, children will sing, play rhythm games and use instruments, both in structured activities and free play. Across KS1 and KS2, children will have weekly music lessons which will teach our pupils the skills required for singing, playing instruments and writing music. 

Music is considered a subject in its own right but is also used to support and enhance other areas of the curriculum. For example, during a World War 2 topic, children may explore 1940s music. 

As part of our mindfulness programme, children will be given the opportunity to relax and reflect using mindful music techniques. Music has the potential to relieve stress and focus the mind. We believe that this will ensure children are ready and calm enough to learn.

We are very excited to be working in partnership with The Voices Foundation. A team of musicians and choral experts will teach the children and staff, and help our school to embed singing and music across the year groups.

An Aureus Community Choir is in the making! Children, parents, local residents, teachers and Aureus Secondary pupils will come together to sing and perform at various events! Young and old will celebrate and enjoy being part of a developing and flourishing community. 

Children will also have the opportunity to learn instruments in peripatetic lessons as extra-curricular activities. More information will follow about how to book individual or group lessons in the Autumn term.
