We intend for children to listen to a wide range of music, from different genres across different eras. They should have plenty of opportunities to think critically about what they are listening to. It allows them to pick up key features of music which they can use later in their own music. By enabling them to listen to music from a wide span of periods, it gives them the opportunity to understand how music has developed and changed as a result of time. Children are also given plenty of activities that mean they compose their own music, meaning that they can be creative and explore their use of sounds. They can achieve this in individual performances and as part of a group.
We give children many opportunities to perform in our Music curriculum in order to build their confidence, whether it be a range of pre-composed songs which they can put their own adaptations onto or music which they have composed entirely on their own.
Throughout our curriculum, from Reception through to the end of Key Stage One, our aims are embedded within the planning and opportunities are provided as part of our wider curriculum. The lessons build upon the children’s prior learning, and give children of all abilities the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding. Progression is also planned throughout the school so children have the opportunities to further develop themselves as musicians as well as challenge themselves.Within our whole class teaching, children experience a wide range of musical opportunities with regards to appraising, composing, and performing. They explore a wide range of music. As well as this, a love of music is promoted to include all of these skills from both children and staff.
Our children at Hatch Warren Infant School will have developed a love of Music, including composing and performing. Their skills will have progressed, meaning they will have developed in line with the National Curriculums objectives. As well as this, they will have had the opportunities to participate in a range of wider opportunities in Music through our after school clubs and other events.Music has also been seen to have had a positive impact on well- being and the activities and Music curriculum experience by the children should have developed a love and curiosity for Music as a subject.
