We love music here at Weddington Primary School and we strongly believe that music is a language that everyone can enjoy. It is a powerful and unique form of communication that can change and impact the way children feel, think and act, allowing the body and mind to work together which is what we strive to achieve at Weddington. Therefore, we aim to deliver a high-quality music education which inspires pupils to develop their enjoyment of music. Children are provided with many opportunities of live music to inspire them to begin music lessons. Throughout the year, we invite parents and carers in as audience members to celebrate many memorable events such as: Harvest, Christmas and Easter, in Key Stages, where the children use their voices to sing with confidence and happiness. Each year at Weddington, we hold ‘Weddy’s Got Talent’ which is a wonderful way for children to share their musical talents with the school community. Opportunities to perform outside the school, within our local environment, ensure our children understand its significance and place within the wider world and that these excite and inspire children’s thirst for knowledge and participation in this subject.
Our curriculum is centred around the Model Music Curriculum which aims to develop four main strands: Singling, Listening, Composing and Performing via an online scheme ‘Charanga’.
The National curriculum for music, aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music
- Be taught to sing, create and compose music
- Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated.
In Reception the children enjoy singing nursey rhymes and lullabies and using their outdoor music station to develop curiosity, creativity and pride in creating sounds for others to enjoy. The children learn songs about music from other countries.
In Key Stage 1 we intend for the children to develop their understanding of pulse, rhythm and pitch through different music styles. At the end of Key Stage 1, Year 2 put on a fabulous end of Key Stage performance including singing and performing, using instruments.
In Key Stage 2 we intend to continue to develop their understanding of pulse, rhythm and pitch. The children sing songs and learn to play instruments, composing their own melodies using musical notation and by understanding staff. The children learn about The History of Music and about some of the Greatest Composers of all time in order to broaden their knowledge and understanding of its origins. Year 4 enjoy being taught to play an instrument by a specialist from Warwickshire Music Hub. At the end of Year 6, children showcase their musical talents, as well as building perseverance, self-belief, resilience, team work and pride in a fantastic, end of Year production.
Through this subject, how will the children explore the Pathway of Possibilities to visit The Seven Wonders Of Weddy?
