MUSIC
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.
