Music

“Music can change the world because it can change people.” – Bono

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. Here at Wellfield we strive to engage and inspire pupils in developing a love of music and their talent as musicians. We work to build self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.

Homework

In Music, we assign homework through Google Classroom.  Over each term, three homeworks will be set. These challenge questions ask to children to think more about their own feelings and thoughts about music in general, as well as developing how they explain their ideas.

 

In addition, there will be posts on ‘Artists Of The Week’ and sharing the specific artists music. This is designed to expose the pupils to a wider variety of music and potentially music they would never have thought about listening to.

Extra-Curricular Music

We offer private music lessons with peri teachers who visit the school.  Please contact the school office for more information.
