Our Vision: Listen, Perform, Create—to engage and inspire a love of music, that develops talent as a musician and an appreciation and understanding of music across time and the world
Subject Leader: Mrs Franks
The National Curriculum Purpose of Study for Music:
“Music is an 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 talents 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.
Music at Kemsley:
Our learning in Music where possible is linked to our “Cornerstones” curriculum themes. We are working to develop a scheme of work that supports, builds on and enhances these activities, alongside a range of visits from external teachers and musicians.
We are working to foster a love and appreciation of different music by exposing the pupils to a range of styles in music. We aim to enhance the pupils curriculum experiences by offering opportunities for them to participate in a variety of activities and events that will engage and inspire them musically.
What we are good at:
- Providing a variety of musical experiences from outside visitors
- Our staff and pupils love music and singing!
- Learning about different types of music from different places
Things we are working on:
- Developing the resources we have to use in our music lessons
- Developing our understanding of the theory of music
- Creating even more opportunities for us to take part in different musical experiences
