Music Statement of Intent
At Loseley Fields Primary our main aim is that children leave school with a wide range of rich and happy memories in music, formed through interesting and exciting experiences. These intend to reflect the world around them but at the same time give them access to musical styles throughout history. We are all musicians and want to use music to celebrate equality and diversity across the primary setting.
Our music curriculum will engage and inspire pupils of all abilities to develop a love of music and their talents as musicians, which will increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
Children will meet the National Curriculum expectations in music through well planned lessons using guidance from Model Music Curriculum and Charanga to support teaching and learning.
At Loseley Fields Primary, children will gain a firm understanding of music through listening and appraising, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing and composing.
We will ensure every child has the opportunity to learn to play a variety of musical instruments during their time at Loseley Fields. By the end of Key Stage 2 pupils learn to read music and play tuned instruments as part of an ensemble in class and have the opportunities to perform to the whole school and wider community.
Aim of the Music Curriculum
The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
• perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
• learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
• understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
