Music stimulates complex thinking which requires high levels of precision. It demands commitment and imaginative decision making. Music is a powerful medium for communication between people of different ages, cultures and social backgrounds.
Here at Lime Academy Parnwell, we believe that musical activity allows children to explore feelings and provides children with opportunities to express themselves in ways that support or go beyond verbal communication. Being exposed to regular music making activities and being encouraged to respond to music can develop children’s aural awareness, self-confidence, self-esteem and creativity.
Lime Academy Parnwell seeks to fulfil the statutory requirements as outlined in the New National Curriculum in an enjoyable and practical way.
Children have the opportunity to access peripatetic music sessions taught by specialist music teachers. Please speak to a member of office staff if you would further information about this.
In addition to this, all pupils take part in weekly singing assemblies lead by Mr Kaz, our Music leader.
