River School children participate in an interactive music program. The “Sensory Project”, led by Mr. John teaches the children about music through exploration of rhythm, tempo, music and movement. Musical themes are focused and intertwined with the curriculum, strengthening the child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional and motor development. As the children make music together they develop a love of music. To further support their learning, the whole school comes together on a weekly basis for a school wide “Music Mash-Up,” where we sing our favorite songs.
Because we want you to share the music with your children, every River School family receives a “Sensory Project” CD which was created by Mr. John with River School’s support and encouragement. We hope you will enjoy singing along with your child.
