Music at CBINS
Intent - Our Music curriculum is designed to enable and inspire all children to develop a love for music and increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. We encourage our children to become musicians by learning to sing and use their voices, play musical instruments, create and compose music, listen to and evaluate a wide range of music and explore the inter-related dimensions of music. We feel it is crucial for children to participate in a subject that can give so much enjoyment and confidence, stimulate so much creativity and connect so many in one universal language.
Implementation – We implement this by following blocks of learning experiences linked to the inter-related dimensions of music that builds on prior musical knowledge and understanding in order to meet and go beyond national expectations as outlined in the EYFS and KS1 curriculum. Children learn to become musicians through using their voice in different ways for singing and performing chants and rhymes; exploring musical instruments in their independent play and in taught sessions; listening to and moving to music; experimenting with sounds and ideas to compose their own pieces of music; learning performance skills and quality first teaching.
