Ethos and Development of Music and Drama at The Willows
Music and Drama have been proven to improve skills such as concentration, co-ordination and communication, as well as providing benefits such as being part of a team and making friends.
We are working to develop these areas here at The Willows. Music is taught in Early Years and KS1/2.
Productions this academic year will be Early Years and KS1 at Christmas, Years 3/4 in the Spring Term and Years 5/6 in the Summer term. We are very lucky to have the help from Stagecoach for productions in the school.
We are also grateful to the HUB service which gives every child in the school an opportunity to learn a brass instrument in year 4, with the provision to carry on in year 5 and 6 if they choose to.
A choir will be rehearsing as well every Wednesday. We hope singing enthusiasts in KS2 will come along and benefit from the experience.
Events and productions will be updated on this page.
Children who learn to play an instrument often improve their results in other subjects as music is the only subject which uses all parts of the brain at once! This is regardless of whether or not the student is an expert player or not, it is simply the concentration and development which has an impact.
