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
Choices
Depth

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. 
Independence

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 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.
