Intent: What is our Music curriculum vision?
Our overarching aim is to ensure that our children enjoy music and feel musical. At Hadlow Primary School we want to develop a life-long love of music, both across genres and throughout history. Our curriculum is designed to introduce children to a wide and diverse selection of music, across different countries and cultures; zooming back through the decades and centuries and using technology to enhance our compositions. With focus on skills, knowledge and understanding we build confident performers, composers and listeners.
As children move through the school they revisit and develop their skills in singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, improvising and composing, and listening and responding to music. Our music curriculum also promotes cross curricular links and helps to develop transferable skills: team work, leadership, creative thinking, problem solving and performance skills. These focus areas are vital to child development, Music can help to enhance so many different aspects of learning and the wider application is limitless, we aim to develop musical learners and rounded, confident individuals.
