What will children learn?
At Thundersley Primary School, our Music Curriculum provides many opportunities for the children to develop interest and understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating and composing across a wide range of historical periods, styles and genres. We engage and challenge children with musical experiences that will inspire them in the future and ensure that they understand the value and importance of music in their own and others’ lives and wellbeing.
How will children learn?
At Thundersley Primary School, we will achieve this by:
- Providing a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum through ‘Charanga’.
- Teaching music consistently each term.
- Teaching and learning shows progression across both key stages within the strands of music.
- Teaching the elements of music so that the children are able to use the language of music to analyse and appreciate it, having an understanding of how it is constructed.
- Learning to compose using different dimensions of music.
- Peripatetic teachers come into school to teach individual instruments, piano/keyboard, guitar and cornet, to those who wish to learn.
- Participating in a variety of performances during the year which involve singing – Carol Service, Easter Service, Infant and Junior Music Festivals and the O2.
- Offering the children the opportunity to join the School Choir in KS2 and a Music Group in KS1.
- Children attending a weekly singing assembly which focusses on songs with a good moral message.
