At Heath Primary School we endeavour to deliver high-quality music education, which engages and inspires pupils to develop a love of music. As pupils progress, they will be encouraged to listen to music across a range of genres, discussing its qualities critically including through the inter-related dimensions of music, practice and perform solo and group pieces, and create and compose their own pieces of music.
Throughout each year all National Curriculum attainment targets will be covered, where possible, through cross curricular learning. If there are no obvious links then it is taught discreetly. Music Express and Music Express Online are used to support teachers’ delivery of the music National Curriculum.
This year our Year 5 and 6 classes will be given the opportunity to learn to play a brass instrument through the Derbyshire Wider Opportunities Partnership.
Children in Key Stage 2 have the opportunity to participate in small group music lessons. More information and costing for these can be obtained from the school office.
