Our curriculum vision is reflected in the music curriculum through the key concepts of:
Listening - Performing - Composing
Listening refers to the need to give attention to a sound or action, and then to respond to that sound or action. This can be linked to our focus on Environment (responding to sounds within nature).
Performing refers to the ability to present to an audience and can be linked with our focus on Growth (realising our potential) and Community (sharing and contributing to a range of audiences).
Composing refers to the ability to conceive a piece of music and the art of creating music as a finished product. This can be linked to our focus on Spirituality (reflecting and thinking deeply).
Our curriculum statement details Intent, Implementation and Impact for music.
Our progression map shows the sequencing of learning which enables teachers to build on children’s prior knowledge and plan a series of lessons which will enable children to achieve the end points specified.
Granular Detail Documents specify the disciplinary and substantive content which will be taught. Key objectives are those which need to be embedded in children’s long-term memories.
