Our St Swithun's Curriculum for Music
Our Subjct Leader for Music is Mrs Morgan.
Through our curriculum we intend to engage and inspire pupils to develop a lifelong love of music andto develop their talent as musicians. This leads to increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to foster a love of music and to build the confidence of all children. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music.
As children get older, we expect them to engage critically with more extended pieces of music. Children develop descriptive skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent feelings and emotions. We teach them the skills of recognising pulse and pitch. Also, we teach the children how to work with others to compose music and perform for an audience.
