Musicians from Sherford Vale will have opportunities to engage and be inspired to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians. All children are actively encouraged and given opportunities to learn to play a musical instrument, from standard classroom instruments to individual instrumental lessons with our visiting peripatetic teachers. Music is planned in-line with the statements laid out in the national curriculum using Charanga with cross-curricular links to topics where possible. Children develop their singing voices, use body percussion and whole-body actions, and learn to handle and play classroom instruments effectively to create and express their own and others’ music. Through a range of whole class, group and individual activities, children have opportunities to;

  • Sing, create and compose music
  • Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music, across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians
  • Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
