Music

Curriculum Intent: Music

 

At Wolverley we aim to provide a high quality music education which engages and inspires children, enabling them to develop a love of music whilst increasing self-confidence, creativity and a sense of achievement. We encourage children to develop their own appreciation of music and we provide opportunities to explore, create and perform.

 

 To become a great musician we need:

 

                         Confidence                             Hard Work                        Practice

   

                                                     Perseverance              Creativity                 

 

                                  A love of music                             A sense of adventure

 

 

Music is planned in-line with the statements from the National Curriculum

These aim 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

 

Through the Charanga Musical School scheme and related to themes/topics where possible, pupils have the opportunity to experience and learn about music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, enabling an understanding of context and genre. They explore different music styles through the language of music via active listening, improvising, composing and peforming. 

Pupils are encouraged to assess their own learning alongside the teacher assessment that takes place.

Opportunities are provided for all children to learn how to play a musical instrument, whether that be classroom instruments or lessons provided by specialist teachers.
