Music (Foundation subject)

We aim to ensure that, through listening to music, performing and composing, our children develop self-confidence, express themselves creatively and develop an understanding of the core elements of music. Music also plays a part in the cultural life of the school in the form of concerts, carol services, and music/drama productions.

 

The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • 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.
