Music and Dance


Music forms an integral part of the curriculum and can be incorporated into the topics or is taught in its own right. An understanding of the musical elements including pulse, rhythm, melody and structure are developed as well as musical knowledge and skills. Activities include creative music making, which is sometimes linked to dance, art or writing, listening to and appraising music and singing. Opportunities to perform music are given through a variety of different occasions such as class or school assemblies, school productions, seasonal concerts and religious festivals.
