Music

Music at Tiverton. At Tiverton we aim to give children the opportunity to develop their confidence, skills and creativity through participating and performing in exciting new Musical productions, class music lessons, singing assemblies, the school choir and singing club. In music lessons, children explore the subject through singing, writing songs and instrumental music and listening and responding to a wide variety of recorded music. There is a strong focus on links with other subject areas. In choir, singing club and Music assembly children learn songs from around the world and can sing in many languages including Hindi, Japanese, Gaelic,

Urdu, Spanish, Hebrew, Zulu and Turkish. Musical productions and Music assemblies are performed regularly at the school with the children always taking an active role in creating the music and choreographing movement. Some examples of recent projects are: ‘Amazon!’ This is a performance piece created by the children about the destruction of the rainforest, involving instrumental music, songs, poems, movement and props. ‘Freedom Song: The Music of South Africa’ is a project exploring the role of music during the apartheid era. ‘Journey Through a Day’ is a day in the life of a Tiverton child told through Songs, Raps, Poems, and instrumental music including a percussion section about break time using just hand clapping, Hopscotch and ball bouncing rhythms!

The Music teacher is Miss Kate Stilitz
