Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
End KS 1
At the end of KS1 we aim to begin to develop a love of music. Children begin to develop the skills of singing, playing a range of instruments and composing. Music is used to unite KS1 and develop a sense of enjoyment in music.
End KS 2
Children develop the skills of singing, playing a range of instruments and composing using appropriate notation. Pupils explore many different styles of music. They increasingly become independent in their choice of instruments both tuned and un-tuned.
Pupils will also have the opportunity to participate and develop their skills, interests and talents through our performing arts club and school choir.
