In Music the children experiment with voice, instruments and composition and become familiar with a variety of musical forms.
Key Stage One pupils should be taught to:
· use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and rhymes
· play tuned and untuned instruments musically
· listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live and recorded music
· experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the inter-related dimensions of music
Key Stage Two pupils should be taught to:
· play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
· improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related dimensions of music
· listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory
· use and understand staff and other musical notations
· appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians
· develop an understanding of the history of music
For our music lessons at Pinehurst, we use Charanga and also have a specialist teacher from Resonate Music Hub teach in our school for 2 hours per week. Our music teacher will focus on one year group per half term.
