Music will be taught as part of a progressive knowledge-rich curriculum with transferable skills that deepen and ensure enduring understanding, enabling children to become more proficient. The curriculum will engage and inspire children to develop their creativity and a love of music.

The language and vocabulary of music will be taught explicitly ensuring that it is transferable and enables children to listen with discrimination, analyse and evaluate a wide range of musical works.

The music curriculum will provide children with meaningful and quality learning experiences through a well sequenced and cohesive curriculum built on prior learning to improve children’s self-confidence.

Children will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to become autonomous and expressive learners and experiment, invent and perform their own musical expressions.

Long Term Planning
We teach our Music in topics. Music topics usually last for half a term but can sometimes run for longer periods of times.

An overview of our School Curriculum can be found on the Curriculum page of our website. Please look for our Long Term Planning document. Below is the information contained within our Long Term Planning document about our Music Curriculum.

Knowledge Organisers

Learning Overviews
Each half term teachers produce Learning Overviews. These give details of everything being taught in a half-term. These Learning Overviews are published on our Class Pages of this website.

Please note, due to our rolling programme of Learning Themes, not every Foundation Subject is taught every half-term. However, be the end of each academic year, all the necessary content will have been covered by each year group.
