Music

Music is taught as part of the National Curriculum in normal lesson time for all children, and we are well resourced in this area. The main aims of the music curriculum are to ensure children:

  •  perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • learn to sing and to use their voices to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.

Children are taught skills via four major musical strands :-

1.     Performing Skills - controlling sounds through singing and playing

2.     Composing Skills - creating and developing musical ideas

3.     Appraising Skills - responding and reviewing

4.     Listening Skills - listening to a variety of music and applying knowledge and understanding
