Our aim is the enable each child to enjoy music, participate with enjoyment and enthusiasm and to develop a love of music. We aim to broaden their understanding and appreciation of a wide range of different kinds of music, and to acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to make music. We aim to develop skills, attitudes and attributes that can support learning in other areas of the curriculum.
In addition, music lessons are available in school time with a peripatetic teacher for guitar.
Key Stage 1
Pupils will be taught how to control sounds through singing and performing. They will be given opportunities to create and develop their musical ideas and learn how to review and respond to their own and others work. During this Key stage children will learn to engage with different genres of music by listening to recordings and live performances.
Key Stage 2
Children will continue to build upon the basic skills they have already acquired in Key Stage 1. Children will be given the opportunities to develop their performing skills and their ability to sing in unison and in two parts. Children will be given the opportunities to see and take part in live performances within the school environment and within the wider community.
