Music is such an important part of everyone’s daily lives. Here at Wyvern we believe that it’s a powerful and unique form of communication enriching and enhancing the lives of everyone that it touches. It can change the way in which we feel, think and act. How often does music trigger a memory or emotion?
Music at Wyvern give us everyone a level playing field on which to work together. Pupils learn to turn-take, communicate, gain confidence, and explore and listen to various instruments and musical genres. It also enhances the learning from other subjects, for example using numeracy songs about the Rainforest animals, learning a “coffee rap”, and singing about the various rainforest countries. We fit the topic work into a familiar format which gives the children some security but allows us to introduce new things too. Over time they remember musical terms and some quite tricky instrument names!
