Through our Music curriculum we aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they develop lifelong skills and knowledge.
We believe that music encourages our pupils to express themselves and become better listeners. Music also develops the skills needed for teamwork and helps grow a lifelong love of independent learning, covering the basic skills and attitudes across the curriculum.
Aims and Intent
Through our music curriculum, we aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child, so that they develop lifelong skills and knowledge.
We believe that music encourages our pupils to be better listeners, have pride in their work, have a sense of self and develop essential team working skills. Music also encourages our pupils to express themselves and celebrate as individuals.
Having access to high quality musical experiences can support mental health and develop self-esteem. Children will learn how music can represent feelings and emotions. At Carnagill, our aim is to provide a music curriculum which will enable each child to reach their full potential as musicians, encourage children to enjoy singing, composing and performing and provide children with the opportunity to perform in front of an audience both within and outside of school. Through singing songs regularly, children will learn about the structure and organisation of music.
We will make music an enjoyable learning experience. We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build confidence in all children. Our music curriculum will support the cultural development of pupils by teaching them to listen to and appreciate different forms of music.
We aim to provide ‘A high-quality music education that engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians. To increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.’ DfE, National Curriculum 2014
Our music curriculum will ensure our pupils know more, remember more and can do more.
