Music

Intent

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. We believe that music is a powerful form of communication that can change the way pupils feel, think and act.  It can stimulate children in their learning and allow them to express themselves in different ways.  Music can also reflect the culture of the society we live in – past and present -  and through the teaching of music, we enable children to better understand the world we live in.   

 

We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills, to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music.   

The objectives of teaching music in our school are to enable children to:

  • know and understand how sounds are made and then organised into musical structures; 
  • know how music is made through a variety of instruments; 
  • know how music is composed and written down; 
  • know how music is influenced by the time, place and purpose for which it was written; 
  • develop the interrelated skills of performing, composing and appreciating music.
