As shared at our Assembly last Friday and at our Parent Information Evening held on the evening of Tuesday April 17, our methodology places emphasis on listening to the process over product by ensuring that the journey of learning is beautiful, ever engaging, lasting in ways that make the children’s educational biography memorable, marked by continuing creative agency. As written in the E1, E2 and the Atelier blogs, we believe constructing a repertoire with the children on listening is pivotal since the act or art of listening forms the foundation of learning. With Visiting Scholar to YIS, Dr. Alison Reynolds, we have been fortunate to co-construct an extended repertoire on listening to the musical moments ever present in the daily lives of the children. What are the musical moments we so often miss? What does musicality mean? What is music? We are heightening our understanding and sensitivity towards what Dr. Reynolds calls ‘music-ing’, listening to those spontaneous moments to which to scaffold. We listen to the rhythm of the hammers beating in unison, we listen to the duet of ‘meowing’ cats, we listen to the movements of the children’s steps, we listen to the twirling of the children’s bodies like helicopters…where were we? Where are we? Where are we going?
