Music plays an important and consistent part in the life of the children. At Beaumont Primary Academy we ensure that children are engaged and inspired to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. With progression, they will develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to a wide repertoire of music
Our curriculum for Music aims to ensure that all pupils can:
- Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.
- 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
- Learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence
We are currently using `The Charanga Musical School Scheme` to ensure that all children across the school are being developed in the following musical skills.
- Listening and appraising
- Singing and musical instrument practise
- Performing and sharing
The scheme allows us to teach music through different genres of music, tailored to the age and stage for that year group. The scheme also allows us to support confident musicians to deliver challenge through differentiated tasks throughout each lesson.
Our curriculum ensures pupils experience and understand what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. It ensures all pupils develop key music skills, as set out by the national curriculum. These are as follows:
- To ensure children develop an enjoyment and love of music.
- To and identify a variety of music from different styles and different instruments using a range of musical vocabulary to express their knowledge and opinion.
- To know, understand and demonstrate how pulse and rhythm work together.
- To sing in an ensemble with the aim of producing a round sound, clear diction, control of pitch and musical understanding of how parts fit together.
- To ensure an entitlement to music for all pupils in line with the National Curriculum
- To promote continuity, progression and coherence across the school.
