At Southey Green Primary School, it is our intent that we make music an enjoyable learning experience where children develop a curiosity of music and build up the confidence to explain and develop curiosity further. Our teaching focuses on developing the children’s ability to understand rhythm and follow a beat. We teach them to listen and to appreciate different forms of music as well as developing children’s descriptive language skills in music lessons when learning about how music can represent different feelings, emotions and narratives. We also teach technical vocabulary such as volume, pitch, beat and rhythm and encourage children to discuss music using these terms. It is our intention that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.
Throughout the school year the children at Southey Green Primary School and Nurseries get involved in lots of very different musical activities – both making music, listening to music and generally enjoying music.
Our aims and goals in music are to always work towards a performance, sometimes to our peers, other times to adults and staff from in school but often from outside of school. We have strong community links and enjoy performing for our community showcasing our very special school and showing people how our music is developing.
