Our music curriculum intends to inspire creativity, self expression and to foster a life long love of music by exposing them to diverse musical experiences and igniting a passion for music. By listening and responding to different musical styles, across a wide range of historical periods, finding their voices as singers, performers and composers, our children will become confident, reflective musicians.
Our music curriculum ensures children explore a range of musical skills, develop a critical engagement with music and prepares them in readiness for high school . It provides opportunities to sing, listen, play, perform and evaluate, guaranteeing progression across the year groups.
Our curriculum develops children’s ability to understand rhythm and follow a beat through performing on a range of musical instruments. Children will learn about the structure and organisation of music by singing songs. We teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music across different time periods, cultures and traditions. This supports children to understand the cultural capital of being open minded in their listening as well as knowledgeable about a breadth of musical genres in the world today.
