Music 

Our Music Curriculum aims/intends to:

  • Enable pupils to develop knowledge, understand concepts and acquire skills, and be able to choose and apply these in relevant situations.
  • Support pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through listening, responding and performing a wide variety of music.
  • Ensure varied opportunities to learn and perform music, either within the school or local community and in so doing to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils and to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
  • To promote a positive attitude towards learning through participation in listening, singing, improvising and performing experiences, including learning to play musical instruments.
  • Ensure equal access to learning for all pupils, with high expectations for every pupil and appropriate levels of challenge and support. All children are encouraged to take part and perform with confidence within the school or local community. Through the local Music Hub Access for all Scheme, all children have to opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument for a year (usually in year 4).
  • Pupils to feel confident to make links between the knowledge they are acquiring and to be able to use their skills to develop their understanding through a spiral curriculum, linking knowledge and understanding of key concepts, developing skills and confidence as they progress through Early Years, Key Stage 1 and 2.
  • Through listening and discussing, performing in a variety of styles and cultures during their music lessons pupils are equipped with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in later life.

 

Music is an important part of the experience we offer at Loddon Primary school. Our commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum and the value that is placed on music at our school, was especially recognised in 2021 when we were awarded the Music Mark by the UK Association for Music Education.

Music is taught from Early Years to Year 6. Each team performs to an audience at least once a year, and children are given opportunities to perform to the local community; for example, WASMA, Wokingham School’s Carol Concert and the Woodley Festival.
