Music & MFL

Music

We provide a music education that empowers individuals to partake in one of the highest art forms, that promotes self-confidence, self-esteem and gives all pupils a sense of achievement. We do this through providing opportunities for appreciation, composition and singing alongside new opportunities and chances to showcase talents within and beyond our school community. We are committed to inspiring children to develop a life-long love of music, develop creativity, imagination and fostering talents.

Year 6 Music

MFL

We believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. It helps them to develop communication skills, including the key skills of speaking and listening, and extends their knowledge of how language works. Learning another language gives children a new perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others.

At Blue Coat we have provided learning opportunities for all children in Years 3 – 6 since 2005. The focus language taught in our school is French.

 

The children will be given opportunities to:

  • listen carefully and recognise sounds and combinations of sounds which are similar to, or different from, those of English;
  • understand and respond with increasing competence, accuracy and confidence in a range of situations;
  • join in songs, rhymes, raps and stories which enable them to practise the sounds of the language in an enjoyable and non-threatening way;
  • take part in conversations at an appropriate level, reacting to instructions and questions and expressing opinions and feelings;
  • memorise and recite short texts
