Ukulele club is an exciting new club we have started at Springfield. This club provides support for any children who may find learning recorder in the classroom overwhelming. One of the main focuses of Ukulele club is to provide a safe, calm space for children to access the music curriculum while also supporting their sensory needs and mental wellbeing. Learning the ukulele is a fantastic means of supporting fine motor skills and allows children to develop musical skills such as, rhythm, tone, composition and imitation.
The intended outcomes for Ukulele Club in Springfield are:
For pupils to develop a more significant connection with the world that surrounds them.
Providing a group of pupils with the same goal which is favourable for their interpersonal relationships.
To stimulate pupil development as they discover and establish new expression ways for their emotions and general communications.
To help Pupils develop gross motor skills or strengthen them.
To help Pupils improve senses’ sharpness.
To promote creative behaviours and self-determination.
