Teaching & Learning
Music is taught by a specialist music teacher, with all aspects of the National Curriculum addressed as the children progress through the school. Music Express is used as a starting point for Key Stage 1 lessons with the addition of one term of whole class violins at Year 2 and half a term of African drumming for Years 1 and 2 during alternate years, to coincide with study of hot countries.
At Key Stage 2 children sing and learn to play ukulele, African drums, recorder and Samba drumming during whole-class lessons. Through this they develop skills, knowledge and understanding of the subject. Each half term children will listen to and study a piece of classical musical in greater depth to build up a knowledge of music history.
