Through high quality first teaching, we strive to deliver a high quality music education that aims to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and explore and discover or build upon their talent as musicians. As pupils progress through the school, they should develop a critical engagement with a range of different instruments, musical styles, notation and genres, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon. Singing lies at the heart of good music teaching and this is an area we excel in at Landscore. Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to sing in tune and with other people. Through singing songs, children learn about the structure and organisation of music. We teach them to listen to, appreciate, and respond to different forms of music.
Therefore, we intend by the end of Key Stage 2 for children to be able to demonstrate their musical ability confidently using a range of tuned and untuned instruments and they are encouraged to make judgements about how they can improve their own work as well as evaluating and supporting others to improve compositions.
Due to Covid 19, while we can't sing, we have been learning songs through Makaton.
We Use Charanaga to support our planning, the children enjoy being exposed to a range of genres of music and instruments through the website.
