Music

Music in Years 3-6 is taught by our own Music specialist Miss Philpott

The aim of the Music Curriculum is to provide a fun environment for the children to begin developing a musical understanding and a chance to progress throughout KS2 by building upon the skills and requirements as stated in the National Curriculum.

The strands covered include being able to:

  1. Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical
    instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
  2. Improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related
    dimensions of music
  3. Listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory
  4. Use and understand staff and other musical notations
  5. Appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn
    from different traditions and from great composers and musicians
  6. Develop an understanding of the history of music

Each year will be split into the following themes, which connect the 6 strands into a single comprehensive unit of music for the children to enjoy as they develop these diverse skills.
