We have designed a high-quality music curriculum for the pupils who come to Tirlebrook Primary School.
We believe that music is a universal language and that everyone can and should be engaged and inspired by it. It is our intention that, through our carefully sequenced curriculum, our children will develop a personal connection with music and find enjoyment from being exposed to a wealth of musical experiences and opportunities.
Our music curriculum is deigned to progressively develop children’s skills, knowledge and understanding that builds on prior learning and allows children the opportunity to draw on what they have learned before. It is our aim that children should talk confidently and eloquently about music, using accurate technical vocabulary and we hope to achieve this through precision teaching supported by a clear musical pathway.
Providing children with a variety of structured and unstructured musical activities, it is our plan that children will be able to enjoy new discoveries within a supportive learning environment where they feel confident to explore and be creative both independently and together.
It is our belief that music is an excellent medium for children to be able to express themselves, whether it be through performance, composition or appraisal, and it is our intention to share the wide variety of musical genres and styles with children from across a wide-ranging period of time that will enable children to identify with music as a creative art, find comfort in it and from it and use it to express their emotions. Music also has the power to evoke emotions within children, and it is our intention that children will respond to music with clarity and understanding.
Through our curriculum, we will build in meaningful opportunities for children to listen to and learn about the music of great composers and musicians from traditional backgrounds, as well as those from different countries and cultures. With this approach, our children will build an appreciation and respect for diversity within this incredibly creative subject.
It is important to us that our curriculum gives our children meaningful experiences to play, perform, listen, respond, appraise, create and compose. In this way, we will be able to nurture talent, support strengths and musical interests and support all children to achieve the very best they can. Where purposeful links can be made, we aim to make connections between music and a range of other subjects, including: computing, dance, design and technology, drama, English, maths and performing arts. Stimulating the minds of our learners by making these connections will ensure that children are able to engage positively with music having developed positive attitudes towards music. We believe that building opportunities for our children to experience these links first-hand and from experts, our children will develop a strong thirst for learning and show resilience across this extensive subject, proving that music has something for every child at Tirlebrook Primary School.
We are proud to offer a broad and exciting music curriculum that will inspire and excite the children who attend Tirlebrook Primary School.
