Sacks Morasha Music statement
At Sacks Morasha we firmly believe that music is a unique, dynamic and enjoyable way of communicating that inspires and motivates our pupils. We nurture our children’s enjoyment of music through performing, composing and listening to music of different styles.
Music is taught on a weekly basis throughout the year. Our music curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and we make sure that all aspects of music are taught. In addition to implementing the curriculum opportunities are sought for the children to explore their religion through music and song. We embrace both Jewish and British values and offer a broad and exciting repertoire of music for Singing Assemblies and Kabbalat Shabbat. The repertoire of songs is constantly renewed and enriched.
The school has an outstanding choir which is often in demand for outside performances such as Young Voices, Boys Town Jerusalem and various charity events. All children have opportunities to perform in major venues including the Barnet Music Festival. Every year a wide range of Jewish songs is used in preparation for the Chaggim, Kabbalat Shabbat Assemblies, Chagigat Siddur and Chagigat Chumash. This has been aided by the implementation of a Chaggim Songs Sprial to promote learning new songs before each Jewish Festival in all classes.
Year 3 pupils learn to play the recorder in preparation for our annual Music Appreciation and Chanukah Concerts. In their final year every child takes part in a school production for parents in which they demonstrate their wonderful singing and acting abilities. The school aims to give every child the chance to immerse themselves in the world of music and enjoy the immense benefits it brings.
