The curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils
- perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
- learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
- understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
Pupils begin their Music journey with us during the Early Years Foundation Stage and the starting point of our curriculum design includes the area for learning development of 'Expressive arts and Design'. The curriculum we deliver in Reception lays the foundations for the learning that will take place in subsequent years.
