We Are Musicians
At Stoke Lodge we believe that music is a universal language, which is inclusive and accessible for all.
We aim to develop and inspire all students to be able to perform, compose, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of genres styles and traditions; through this they develop an understanding and empathy of cultures, context, time and place. They will develop transferable skills such as collaboration, presentation, independence, concentration, and nurturing working memory both in the classroom and beyond.
We aim to do this in a practical and engaging way, with every student having opportunities to perform, use technology and listen to recorded and live music. Through our music curriculum, all pupils will be given a platform to express their creativity and individuality, whilst supporting their confidence, well-being and mindfulness through an expressive output.
We aim for all students to appreciate and understand the importance of music whilst broadening their horizons.
To achieve this, we celebrate Composer of the Term linked to our Gem or Core Value of the Term, teaching the National Curriculum Objectives and Olympus Key Learning Intentions as part of our curriculum themes linked to the Sustainable Development Goals and also using Charanga.
