Music Intent Implementation and Impact Statement

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.
