At HA music is taught by a music specialist, making cross curricular links with topics where possible. In addition, Year 2 children are learning the recorder and Year 3 children the cornet.
The new National Curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
Music units are by our music teacher to ensure a progressive build up of skills across the school and a broad and rich range of topics.
For more detail on music topics taught, please see our Year Group Curriculum maps.
At HA we take children into their community or invite members of the community into school in order to bring their learning alive and allow experts to be involved in their learning. In music the children have visited a cinema to watch a live screening on ‘Take Ten Pieces’. Children have also been visited by musician parents who have shared their talent with the children. Year 2 and 3 children have performed concerts to hare their learning with the school community. Our choir has sung at a local Christmas festival and a summer community event in a local park.
Outdoor learning plays a vital role in all areas of our curriculum. In music, the outdoors may be used to stimulate the children’s composition ideas and awareness of sound.
