Our music curriculum at Preshute aims to inspire creativity and self-expression and to foster a life long love of music. By listening and responding to musical styles, exposing them to diverse musical experiences and encouraging performance opportunities this will enable them to become confident reflective musicians.
Our aim is to understand what music is by
Performing (singing and playing)
Analysing ( wide variety of musical genres)
We aim to develop a curiosity for the subject and have opportunities for regular music making playing both tuned and untuned instruments and to begin to develop an understanding of musical terminology including notation.
We focus on developing the skills, knowledge and understanding that children need in order to become confident performers, composers and listeners.
Music is taught by mainly class teachers who use the Kapow scheme of work and supported by a music specialist for specific units of work.
The music curriculum at Preshute helps children develop confidence and transferable skills such as team working, leadership, creative thinking, problem solving, decision making, presentation and performance skills.
