The intention of our music curriculum is first and foremost to help children to feel that they are musical, and to help them to develop a life-long love of music. We focus on
developing the skills, knowledge and understanding that children need in order to become confident performers, composers and listeners. Our curriculum introduces
children to music from all around the world and across generations, teaching children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities. Children will
develop the musical skills of singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, improvising and composing music, and listening and responding to music. They will develop
an understanding of the history and cultural context of the music that they listen to and learn how music can be written down. Through music, our curriculum helps
children develop transferable skills such as team-working, leadership, creative thinking, problem-solving, decision making and presentation and performance skills. These
skills are vital to children’s development as learners and have a wider application in their general lives outside and beyond school.
