The aims of our Music curriculum are to develop pupils who:

  • Enjoy and have an appreciation for music.
  • Listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions.
  • Listen to and evaluate the work of great composers.
  • Can sing and use their voices to create different effects.
  • Create and compose music, both on their own and with others.
  • Use a range of musical language.
  • Make judgements and express personal preferences about the quality and style of music.
  • Have opportunities to play a wide variety of instruments, both un-tuned and tuned.
  • Use technology if appropriate.
  • Take part in performances with an awareness of audience.

We recognise that music plays an important part in helping children to feel part of a community, and so we provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music both in class and to an audience. Through assemblies, concerts and key stage performances children are able to express their emotions and showcase their understanding of how to perform with awareness of others. Lessons enable children to develop their skills, appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and begin to make judgements about the quality of music.
