Bromet Primary School Excellence, Enjoyment and Achievement for All

Music

Music can change the world, because it can change people.

INTENT

 

The intention of music at Bromet is foremost to help children to feel that they are musical, and to develop a life-long love of music. We focus on developing the skills, knowledge and understanding that children need to become confident performers, composers, and listeners. Our curriculum introduces children to music from all around the world and across generations, teaching children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities. 


Children will develop the musical skills of singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, improvising and composing music, and listening and responding to music. 


They will develop an understanding of the history and cultural context of the music that they listen to, and learn how music can be written down.

 

Through music, our curriculum helps children develop transferable skills such as team-working, leadership, creative thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and presentation and performance skills. These skills are vital to children’s development as learners and have a wider application in their general lives outside and beyond school.


Our scheme of work enables pupils to meet the end of key stage attainment targets outlined in the national curriculum, and the aims of the scheme align with those in the national curriculum. 

 

IMPLEMENTATION

 

Kapow Primary’s Music scheme takes a holistic approach to music, in which the individual strands below are woven together to create engaging and enriching 
learning experiences:
• Performing
• Listening
• Composing
• The history of music
• The inter-related dimensions of music

 

In each lesson, pupils will actively participate in musical activities drawn from a range of styles and traditions, developing their musical skills and their understanding of how 
music works. Lessons incorporate a range of teaching strategies from independent tasks, paired and group work as well as improvisation and teacher-led performances. 
Lessons are ‘hands-on’ and incorporate movement and dance elements, as well as making cross curricular links with other areas of learning. 

 

IMPACT

 

The expected impact of following the scheme of work is that  children will: 

  • Be confident performers, composers and listeners and will be able to express

themselves musically at and beyond school.

  • Show an appreciation and respect for a wide range of musical styles from around the world and will understand how music is influenced by the wider cultural, social, and historical contexts in which it is developed.
  • Understand the ways in which music can be written down to support performing and composing activities.
  • Demonstrate and articulate an enthusiasm for music and be able to identify their own personal musical preferences.
  • Meet the end of key stage expectations outlined in the national curriculum for Music.
