Music is essentially a practical subject. The curriculum encourages pupils to sing, compose and use percussion instruments in order to develop their creative skills. Through active listening, pupils’ awareness and understanding of different periods, styles and genres are developed.
The school provides pupils with plenty of opportunities to enjoy making music through learning to play an instrument, singing with choirs and playing with a band. Musicians are employed to help deliver this specialist subject particularly in Key Stage 2. The school enjoys regular concerts given by professional musicians visiting the school. Liscard Primary puts a lot of emphasis on children enjoying music at whatever level and we strive to ensure that children are inspired by talented musicians and develop a love of music.
