Music is studied in six half-term units across all year groups from Early Years to Year 6. From the beginning of school life in Early Years, children are working through a progressive and challenging plan towards the National Curriculum goals. We want children to grow in confidence and become expressive individuals, who can listen to and appreciate music, create their own music and be able to play a variety of instruments for pleasure. The skills gained through studying music will ‘open doors’ throughout their lives, as performing develops confidence and self-esteem. Their lives will be ‘enriched’ by developing a love of music. The key terms of music are developed from EYFS to KS2, with listening, singing, performing, composing, improvising and playing being recurrent themes.
