Music Intent

At Langstone Junior Academy we want the children to develop an appreciation of music and an understanding of its influence on our lives and culture. Children will learn to push their musical boundaries by seeking inspiration from composers, songwriters and musicians throughout history and will become resourceful, innovative and creative members of the school community.

Because

all music is fuelled by inspiration and children need to know that it is as varied as it is unique.

Because

it has affected human beings and has changed with us and it is important to see the part that music has played within the wider world context.

Because

we have found that our children learn best through reflection and thinking when discussing with their peers.
