Music gives children an opportunity to explore another form of expression through a variety of musical genres and skills. It will provide enjoyment through interaction and practical application.
We aim for children to be exposed to a variety of different musical genres ranging from early classical right up to modern day pop and rap.
The interrelated dimensions of music of pulse, rhythm, pitch, dynamics, tempo, timbre, structure, texture and notation are explored and expanded through each of the units to develop a broader musical understanding and knowledge as children progress through the year groups.
Practical skills are also integrated into the units with use of percussion instruments. Opportunities for individual instrumental tuition can also be explored.
We follow an augmented Cambridgeshire Music scheme of work “Charanga”.
Feedback is via teacher observation and assessment.
