EYFS Music

The Early Years Foundation Stage Music Curriculum is integral to the children's education, and their musical development will be guided by the 'Musical Development Matters' document written by EYFS music specialist Nicola Burke.  The children will learn through singing songs with teachers, as well as creating their own, and experimenting with instrument sounds inside and outside the classroom. Some of the learning is teacher-led, however the children are encouraged to independently experiment with musical instruments, sounds and their voices. The children are often heard singing, making up songs and making creative noise!
