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:
- Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical
instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
- Improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related
dimensions of music
- Listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory
- Use and understand staff and other musical notations
- Appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn
from different traditions and from great composers and musicians
- 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.
Year 4: The Musical Wizardry of Harry Potter
Year 5: African Drumming and World Music
Year 6: POP! Britain Through the Decades
