Every class has a dedicated music session with the music teacher on a Monday. Whole class music concentrates on general musicality including the basic elements of pitch, rhythm, pulse, tempo, dynamics, timbre and structure. These are explored through performance, composition and listening activities. Singing will be a central part of the children’s music experience as voice and body are their primary instruments.
Music projects, games and songs will be linked to the seasons, festivals and the class topic.
Reception, year1 and 2 have a half hour music workshop session a week. Key stage 2 music will be spread across the different terms in rotation with French.
