At Barming Primary School, we hope to foster a lifelong love of music by exposing pupils to diverse musical experiences and igniting a passion for music. By listening and responding to different musical styles, finding their voices as singers and performers and as composers, all will enable them to become confident, reflective musicians.
The aims of our Music curriculum are to develop pupils who:
Whilst in school, children have opportunities to make their own musical journey, which allows them to discover areas of strength, as well as areas they might like to improve upon. The nature of music and the learner creates opportunities from which a child may access abilities such as: achievement, self-confidence, interaction with and awareness of others, and self-reflection. Music will also develop an understanding of culture and history, both in relation to students individually, as well as ethnicities from across the world. Children are able to enjoy music, in as many ways as they choose - either as a listener, creator or performer. They can discuss music and comprehend its parts. They can sing, add rhythms and create melodies in a group and they can further develop these skills in the future and continue to enjoy and embrace music in their lives.
Young Voices 2022
On Tuesday 24th May, 36 of our wonderful Year 5 & 6 children went to the 02 to perform in their own Young Voices concert as a part of a choir of 8,500 children. The children had worked extremely hard since September 2021 and had to contend with a postponement of their concert date to May. They were all FAB-U-LOUS and were a real credit to Barming Primary. We were treated to songs from the Lion King, a Beatles medley, The Living Years and lots more. Well done Young Voices Choir 2022! Very proud of all of you! Roll on 2023!
