Music is taught in the Early Years Foundation Stage under the umbrella of Expressive Arts and Design. Throughout Key Stages 1 and 2 it is mainly taught as an independent subject, although links with other areas of the curriculum are developed, especially through assemblies and school productions. In recent years, the children have performed productions of Bugsy Malone, Joseph and his Technicolour Dream coat and Aladdin.
The two main elements to the programme of study for music include performing and composing and listening and appraising. Opportunities are made for the children to perform in front of parents and the wider community. These occasions are always well attended and highly enjoyable.
During KS2 the children participate in the ‘Wider opportunities Instrumental Tuition Programme’. In this each child has the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.
