Music

Intent

At Templefield Lower School, we aim to deliver a Music curriculum that ensures all children perform, listen to, review, and evaluate music.  That children will be taught to sing, create, and compose music. Also, they will be encouraged to understand and explore how music is created, produced, and communicated.  All learning will be linked to the National Curriculum and there will be a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres covered.  

We are committed to developing a curiosity for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the validity and importance of all types of music, and an unbiased respect for the role that music may wish to be expressed in any person’s life.  We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.

 

Implementation

The music curriculum ensures children sing, listen, play, perform and evaluate.  This is embedded in the classroom through the structured music programme.  The elements of music are taught in the classroom lessons so that children can use some of the language of music to dissect it, and understand how it is made, played, appreciated and analysed. In the classroom children learn key aspects of music through cross-curricular links.  They also learn how to compose, focusing on different dimensions of music, which in turn feeds their understanding when listening, playing, or analysing music. Composing or performing using body percussion and vocal sounds is also part of the curriculum, which develops the understanding of musical elements without the added complexity of an instrument.

 

Impact

Whilst in school, children have access to a varied programme, which allows them to discover areas of strength, as well as areas they might like to improve upon. The integral nature of music and the learner creates an enormously rich palette from which a child may access fundamental abilities such as: achievement, self-confidence, interaction with and awareness of others, and self-reflection. Music will also develop an understanding of culture and history, both in relation to children individually, as well as ethnicities from across the world. Children can enjoy music in as many ways as they choose – either as listener, creator, or performer. They can dissect music and comprehend its parts.  They can sing and feel a pulse. They understand how to further develop skills less known to them, should they ever develop an interest in their lives.
