MUSIC

  

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything - Plato

Music is a universal language spoken across the world. It draws together people and cultures; making a beautiful backdrop for life. At Wolston St Margaret’s, we believe in providing children a wealth of opportunities to listen, appreciate and perform a range of music. Our aim is to foster a love and understanding of music by providing lively, engaging and interactive music lessons. The children participate in: singing; tuned and untuned percussion work; and composition. In addition to this, pupils listen to and take part in discussions about music from a range of cultures and time periods. All children are taught the skills to be able to compose using musical instruments. When they are ready, musical notation is taught and children are taught correct musical terminology e.g. rhythm, melody, pitch, dynamics.

MUSIC LEARNING LEAFLETS

Learning Leaflets include key vocabulary with definitions, dates and timelines, maps, significant individuals and other contextual knowledge along with key skills the children will need to demonstrate. We expect the majority of children to know the information on the learning leaflet by the end of the unit of work and be able to recall key detail.

The facts on the Learning Leaflet are the crystallised, necessary information about a topic but they don't represent the topic in its entirety and many children will have a far deeper understanding and be able to discuss and elaborate much further.
