At High Hazels our intent for the music curriculum is to enthuse, engage and inspire children though a high quality, sequenced and enriched music curriculum. We want children to have high aspirations for themselves and their future, to prepare them for life after primary school and support them in developing the core values that we think will help them succeed.
We teach music weekly. Each lesson is taught by the class teacher and uses the Charanga scheme of work to deliver the curriculum, with a focus on the dimensions of music (pulse, pitch, dynamics, rhythm, texture and tempo), as well as listening to, improvising, singing and composing music, we plan to provide our children with a quality, enriched and engaging music education.
Our children know more and remember more, leaving them ready to face the next stage of their music education in key stage 3. If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making the expected progress and are therefore working at the age related standard for their year group. Pupils should build on their previous knowledge and skills through performing, composing and listening. They should listen with increasing discrimination and awareness to inform their practice as musicians, improvise and compose, and extend and develop musical ideas by drawing on a range of musical structures, styles, genres and traditions, use staff and other relevant notations, identify and use inter-related dimensions of music expressively.
