Music teaching at Woodlands Primary School is a key part of our curriculum as it engages pupils and inspires them to be creative. We deliver stimulating lessons both in class and through specialist music provision across a range of genres. This creative approach allows pupils to develop a love of music and increase their confidence and imagination.
The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:
– 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
– learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
– 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.
In addition to this, a love of music is encouraged through weekly singing assemblies for each Key Stage. These assemblies are cross curricular and address important topics, such as bullying and recycling, through specific motivating songs. Our songs also recognise important religious festivals, across different cultures.
Woodlands Primary School pride ourselves on our fantastic Key Stage Two choir who regularly perform in concerts, both at school and within the local community.
