Thomas Willingale School and Nursery

Music vision and intent at TWS

Music plays an important role at TWS in increasing our children’s emotional wellbeing, cultural capital and confidence. Music unites the school and children come together to sing regularly, they have plentiful opportunities to explore different styles of music. We aim to provide a sense of enjoyment and a positive attitude that inspires pupils to develop a love of music. Musicians at TWS develop skills in singing, playing a range of instruments and composing. Every child in year 2 learns to play the recorder so that they can develop their confidence with one instrument, learn to read notes from a stave and perform tunes and melodies. We have a thriving choir and the children have opportunities to perform and go out into the community to share music in a positive way. We celebrate our talented musicians giving them opportunities to showcase their learning at special events. Music is an integral part of our school and we aim to provide children with the skills and appreciation, which will allow them to access any form of music they wish in the years ahead.
