Listening to a wide range of music from great composers and musicians develops a deeper understanding of music and helps students to develop as musicians. Each week there will be a piece of music for the whole school to listen to and engage with.
If you're looking to support your child's music skills at home, try the following activities:
Singing or playing an instrument is a great way to connect with music. Who doesn't love singing in the shower?
Listen to music, especially lots of different genres. Try listening to the radio or watching a music channel to hear a good mix of old and new music.

Watch concerts and musicals either in person or online. There are lots of great live music videos on YouTube, and whole concerts can be found on BBC iPlayer.
