Music Vision Statement


At Fulwood St. Peter’s we feel that music is important in forming the collectiveness which unites the school in daily song. Music is a time of enjoyment, celebration and development of our pupils’ emotional well-being and confidence. Bespoke planning is created by teachers and linked to build upon thematic areas of the foundation subjects enhancing pupil understanding and experience. Pupils have choice about the instruments and genre within performance lessons. The composition elements of creating music enhance pupil independent thinking and allow them to explore and develop their self-belief. Performing individually and ensemble ensures pupils develop respect for each other and ensemble composition and performance offers them the opportunities to take the lead within small teams. Each week pupil have the opportunity to listen and appraise real-life music from history in our appreciation assemblies. 

EXAMPLES of Implementation

Year 1


We listened to the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. We looked at the musical instruments and talked about which ones would match straw, sticks and bricks. We then chose the instrument and added it to the story.


Year 2- Nature - We have linked our Forest School and Music knowledge to begin creating our nature song. This will develop further each week as we deepen our understanding.

Year 2- Working to develop their understanding of a stringed instrument (Ukulele). We have recently been examining music based on the theme 'The Great Fire of London'. The children have been looking at how different chords make different sounds and if the strumming pattern effects the tempo of the music.

Year 1 - We worked in a pair to create a musical pattern.

Year 2- Practicing different chords on the ukulele. The children have been independently learning and practicing chords C, Am and F and how to transition between these.

Leading Teams

Year 6

Year 6 have been looking at diatonic scales. 

We have practised these on a piano and tried to listen to when the scale ends and begins.

We have also looked at scale notation. 


Year 2- Practicing different musical patterns. As a class we have written a ‘Great Fire of London’ song. The children have then worked in groups to develop the verses and add chords to create different musical patterns.

Year 3- We have been learning the G, C and F notes on the Ocarina. We will use these to play Old McDonald.
