At Thurcroft Infant school we believe that Music in school will engage and inspire pupils to develop a life-long love of music, raise aspirations and give children the opportunity to explore the world beyond their immediate environment.  Through their musical experiences we intend for children to develop their reading skills by their learning of new vocabulary and rhythmic language. Through the teaching and learning of Music our intention is for children to explore, collaborate and develop their talent as both singers and musicians.  This in turn will increase their self-confidence, well-being, creativity and sense of achievement.

At Thurcroft Infant school we are currently building our own bespoke music scheme based on the guiding principles of the Model Music Curriculum for Key Stage 1, and in line with the National Curriculum. Each term has an overriding aspirational focus – I am a Singer, I am a Composer and I am a Musician. Across school music is implemented through weekly lessons which allow children to learn, practise and consolidate musical skills. The teaching of music at Thurcroft ensures that children listen, appraise, sing, play both untuned and tuned instruments, perform and evaluate their own learning. This takes place through classroom teaching as well as weekly singing assemblies, celebration assemblies and performances. 

Musicians are welcomed in to school to perform for our children and this in turn inspires them and raises their aspirations.
