At Churchfields primary school are aim is to ensure that children feel musical and develop a lifelong love of music. We focus on developing the knowledge, skills and understanding that children need to become confident performers, composers, and listeners. Our curriculum introduces children to music from around the world and across generations, teaching children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities.

Children will sing, play tuned and untuned instruments, improvise and compose music and listen and respond to music. They will learn about the history of music and how they write music down.

The plans align to the national curriculum.

Our music scheme follows a spiral curriculum model so previous knowledge and skills are revisited. We follow the Kapow Primary Scheme as it helps staff feel confident in teaching children to tackle more complex tasks and develop their knowledge and understanding of the history of music.

In each lesson the children will participate in musical activities in a hands-on approach.

Children will be encouraged to develop their knowledge in after school and enrichment with a school choir and yearly performances.
