At Falcon Junior School we make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up the confidence of all children. Our teaching focuses on developing the children's ability to sing in tune and with other people. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. As children get older, we expect them to maintain their concentration for longer and to listen to more extended pieces of music. Children develop descriptive skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent feelings and emotions. We teach the disciplined skills of recognising pulse and pitch. We also teach the children how to work with others to compose music and perform for an audience.
We have been delighted to work with Into Opera and five other schools in a song cycle to record our experiences of Covid-19. You can watch the video here https://youtu.be/IwzJzfwiqgo. We feature in Heroes and 2020: You Can't Hold Me Back.
