At Horsell C of E Junior School, we aim to spark a lifelong love of music in the children regardless of their background or existing knowledge. Each child is given the opportunity to perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
The school promotes music through quality music lessons, a flourishing choir and a school orchestra. We celebrate the role of music and deepen children’s understanding by focusing on a different historical period of music each month.
We further foster musical appreciation by encouraging the children to perform solo or group pieces in a variety of different contexts throughout the school year.
Music is used creatively throughout the curriculum whether to embed learning or to settle and ground children during transitions and mindfulness practices. Horsell Junior aims to create a new generation of musicians, who have the confidence to express themselves through the medium of music.
