Intent Statement for Music

download (5)

Our Music Curriculum is a fully inclusive curriculum that inspires and excites all pupils. It aims to provide children with engaging experiences that enthuse them into life-long learning. Our talented children will have access to singing opportunities through hymn singing, the choir and class Music lessons. Music tuition (peripatetic teachers) will be utilised by class teachers to showcase the children’s talents and to provide further enhancement. Through our scheme of work we foster an environment in which pupils have the opportunity to explore the world around them, to learn from our rich world-wide history, to embrace our British values and to become artistic, imaginative and creative individuals. It is a curriculum that is accessible for all, that celebrates all skills and achievements and that ultimately promotes a great love of learning and music At St. Alban’s, we will strive to promote excellence in music through a shared commitment by teachers, peripatetic teachers, pupils and parents. We aim to achieve ibn whole class teaching lessons by following the Music Curriculum through Kapow.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination” Plato

The intention of the Kapow Primary music scheme is first and foremost to help children to feel that they are musical, and to develop a life-long love of music. We focus on developing the skills, knowledge and understanding that children need in order to become confident performers, composers, and listeners. Our curriculum introduces children to music from all around the world and across generations, teaching children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities.

Children will develop the musical skills of singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, improvising and composing music, and listening and responding to music. They will develop an understanding of the history and cultural context of the music that they listen to and learn how music can be written down. Through music, our curriculum helps children develop transferable skills such as team-working, leadership, creative thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and presentation and performance skills. These skills are vital to children’s development as learners and have a wider application in their general lives outside and beyond school.

Kapow Primary’s Music scheme of work enables pupils to meet the end of key stage attainment targets outlined in the national curriculum and the aims of the scheme align with those in the national curriculum.
