Our Music curriculum is designed to progressively develop children skills in all areas of music. They will use their voices expressively in songs from around the world and in a variety of musical styles. Pupils will also be taught to play a variety of instruments and are encouraged to play together in ensemble groups.
Music lessons are cross-curricular and support deep transferable skills as well as learning and understanding in a range of many other subjects including literacy and numeracy.
We use both the Leicestershire Schools Music Service and Musical Contexts schemes of work to ensure that our learners have access to a wide variety of music experiences as part of the curriculum. Throughout Key Stage 2, our children have the opportunity to develop their music skills further by learning to play different instruments. For example in Year 3 our children learn to play the recorders, Year 4 learn guitar, Year 5 learn drums and Year 6 learn how to play the glockenspiel. This learning culminates in a summer ensemble performance. We also take part in choral events such as Young Voices.
