At Walmley Infant School we want each child to develop a love of learning and show care and respect for each other within the context of a happy, secure and challenging learning environment.
We want children at Walmley Infant School to develop a lifelong love of music. Our aim is to build their confidence and skills when composing and performing music as well as listening to a variety of music from around the world. We aim to encourage children to develop their natural curiosity about music and become creators of new music, growing in confidence to use music as an expressive tool.
At Walmley Infant School, the teaching of music ensures that all children have access to a curriculum that increases their confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. We want all children to have access to a wide genre of music and understand what music is through listening, playing, analysing, evaluating and composing music. Through music, we aim to provide creative and enjoyable opportunities that play an important part in helping children increase their self-confidence and develop other skills such as listening and attention, memory, concentration and coordination.
Our overall aim is for children to not only develop their skills in music but also develop their passion and curiosity to continue learning and enjoying music after they leave our school.
