At Loscoe, music plays an integral part in the daily life of the school and our pupils learn to value music in a variety of ways. Throughout their time with us our pupils will experience music in different forms such as listening, evaluating, composing, and performing. Our pupils also get a chance to take part in music lessons with qualified music teachers and can take part in the school choir. We have designed a curriculum which allows our children to not only learn to sing and practically experience different instruments but also give our pupils an opportunity to learn about composers, instruments and different eras and genres of music.
Daily singing celebrations take place and there are many opportunities throughout the year for our pupils to showcase their singing and musical talents such as our three school performances per year, Christmas and Easter concerts, Rock Steady Concerts, Drumming Workshops, choir practice and Young Voices. Our choir also visit our local care residents to sing at various points throughout the year.
We follow the national curriculum for music which outlines that children should:
In Early Years and Key Stage 1
In Key Stage 2
For a more detailed look at our curriculum please see our music curriculum map attached below.
‘Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon’.
