At Westfield, we provide for children to experience a range of opportunities to explore the Music curriculum in a creative and engaging way. All children have opportunities to listen to music from different cultures, learn the history of different genres as well as the opportunities to listen, appraise, compose and perform. These experiences motivate and increase the confidence of the pupils at Westfield.
The installation of a full music room is an exciting addition which has opened many possibilities. New instruments have been purchased for use, such as steel pan drums, and previous instruments have been restored, including our large selection of guitars. This presents new opportunity for all classes to be taught in a room fully equipped and also provides an area for external providers to maximise their teaching capabilities.
Children have the opportunity to learn musical instruments during their time at Westfield. Children learn the recorder in Year 2 and the guitar in Years 3 and 4.
