Welcome to Music at Woodlands
'Where words fail, Music speaks!'
The teaching of music is based upon the fact that it is a creative and social art to be enjoyed. At Woodlands, children have the opportunity to enjoy musical experiences through listening, singing, movement and dance and by playing tuned and un-tuned percussion. As a school, we follow the Charanga program of work, which guides us through various musical activities such as listening and appraising, creating and exploring as well as singing and playing instruments. We will also spend time exploring the musical vocabulary, different composers and the history of music.
We are also working with a great organisation, AmaSing, to ensure that children are still singing, safely in school.
Whilst we are learning remotely, we will be sharing some material from The Oak Academy, which provide managable music lessons, using minimal equipment at home whilst focusing on the inter-related dimensions of music.
We are looking forward to engaging in lots of exciting musical activities, when the time allows.
