Our aim at Harwood Meadows is to equip each child with the necessary musical knowledge, skills and understanding needed to explore their environment and the wider world. In addition our music curriculum should enhance a pupil’s expression, reflection and emotional development.
Many of our children love to sing, learn a musical instrument and perform; we encourage this in all our pupils. The children in KS2 have the opportunity to learn to play a variety of musical instruments: we employ specialist music teachers form the award-winning Bolton Music service in order to ensure the highest quality music provision. Children in KS1 learn the recorder, which is a great way to learn notation before developing this further in KS2. Children also have the opportunity to take part in the school choir and perform in school as well as in the community. In addition, peripatetic music teachers are available in school should children wish to develop their skills further and learn a musical instrument in a small group or individually.
