The music curriculum is provided to all the children across our school. They will have an opportunity to learn to play different instruments and be taught in KS2 by our wonderfully talented music teacher. The whole school will also enjoy taking part in weekly singing sessions with our professional singing instructor.
Music lessons will be taught to complement the topics that the children are learning within their year groups, with a focus on a particular set of skills and elements each term; this is to ensure a broad experience during the year. The 5 different elements are pulse, voice, rhythm, pitch and music technology.
In addition, the children will be given the opportunity to experience ‘20th Century’ music throughout the year. This will be in the form of assemblies, which will enable the children to learn about different types of genres of music, learn about composers and artists old and new, consider their own thoughts and feelings about a piece of music and be mindful and reflective. This year, the children will also learn more about the German composer Ludwig van Beethoven, as we look back on 250 years since his birth.
