In Music we will aim to ensure that all children 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. They will learn to sing and use their voices to create and compose music on their own and with others and will have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. Children will also understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the interrelated dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.


Using the Collins Connect scheme the children will learn how to sing, play musical instruments and compose their own music. Regular singing opportunities throughout school allow children to practice and share their musical talents. In Key Stage 1 children will learn to play tuned and un-tuned instruments and showcase their talents in the annual Nativity performance. In Year 3 children have the opportunity to learn and perfect playing the Ukulele. In Year 4 and 5 children have weekly singing lessons with the dioceses of Leeds singing scheme. Across the school children can learn how to play musical instruments in a band with the Rock Steady music tuition. Year 6 present a fantastic end of year production and the whole school annually takes part in Make Music Day.


When children leave St Mary’s they will have a broad knowledge of music from exploring genres, composers and instruments. Regular opportunities throughout their school life to create and share high quality music performances.
