Music

Curriculum Intent

 

At Shrivenham CE Primary School, it is our intent that we make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up the confidence of all children. Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to understand rhythm and follow a beat. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music. Children develop descriptive language skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent different feelings, emotions and narratives. We also teach technical vocabulary such as volume, pitch, beat and rhythm and encourage children to discuss music using these terms. Pupils should experience various instruments and have the opportunity to explore and create their own music.

 

The aims of the curriculum:

  • Enjoy and have an appreciation for music.
  • Listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions.
  • Listen to and evaluate the work of great composers.
  • Can sing and use their voices to create different effects.
  • Create and compose music, both on their own and with others.
  • Use a range of musical language.
  • Make judgements and express personal preferences about the quality and style of music.
  • Have opportunities to play a wide variety of instruments, both un-tuned and tuned.
  • Use technology if appropriate.
  • Take part in performances with an awareness of audience.
