We believe that all children are unique and have their own voices. It is our responsibility as a staff to make sure those voices are heard, and are confident in expressing themselves through song. The Charanga music scheme, used at Wavertree CE School has singing at it’s core, as well as the opportunity to create music on a wide variety of instruments, across a whole spectrum of musical styles. There is definitely something in there to suit all tastes.
We provide a nurturing environment where all children feel confident in their ability to perform, and create. There are many opportunities to compose and to improvise in a style the children have studied. We believe this gives our children a platform to express their feelings, and to show their inner-self, through the creation of melody and rhythm.
Wider opportunities are given to children in Years Four and Five, as they work with the Resonate group and learn a specific instrument, in this case, the violin. The most gifted are given the opportunity to take this skill further and gain medals in performance. There are also after school clubs that cater for children who wish to develop their talents in recorder and guitar clubs.
