Music

The national curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians;
  • learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence;
  • understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.

Children at Watermoor experience Music sessions linked to their Creative Curriculum themes, which focus on the key musical aspects of:

  • listening
  • singing
  • musical understanding
  • composition and playing
  • performance.

Musical Instrument lessons:

Music at Watermoor aims to engage and inspire all our pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, increasing their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.

We offer Piano, Guitar and Drum lessons to children in KS1 and KS2. We always look forward to watching and listening to our budding  musicians and singers in our annual 'Watermoor's Got Talent' show, which takes place every July.

'Talking to People in a Nice Way' is an original song written and performed by pupils in Lower KS2. Watermoor School is participating in a brand new Songwriting Charity programme called 'Something Kind'. The programme encourages acts of kindness through songwriting - giving "Kindness" the reputation it deserves.
