The Curriculum Intent for music can be summarised in these ways:

· A learner-centred teaching approach. Ensuring learners deepen thinking, learning is role modelled appropriately, pupils are challenged and engaged.

· We will explore opportunities to question their likes and dislikes of music, revise their own musical compositions, collaborate with others and persevere  to create their own masterpieces. 

· To experience and appreciate a variety of musical genres.

· To gain experience of playing a variety of musical instruments.

· We encourage children to participate in a variety of musical experiences through which we aim to build up the confidence of all children.

· Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music.

· We teach technical vocabulary such as volume, pitch, beat and rhythm and encourage children to discuss music using these terms.

· We use the Kapow scheme of work to ensure complete curriculum coverage with built in CPD for staff.

 The music subject leader is Miss Kim Powell.
