Music Intent 

 

At St Mary of Charity Primary school, we believe music is a universal language, which embodies creativity and confidence. 

 

We aim to teach children to listen and to appreciate different forms of music. Children develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of musical concepts and learn how music can represent different feelings, emotions and narratives. Children develop knowledge from familiar songs and rhymes to include a range of local, cultural and historical pieces in line with class learning. 

 

Understanding the elements of music, such as rhythm and pitch, form a basis for children to gain a wider understanding of the structure of musical pieces. They will build a technical vocabulary supporting their ability to analyse music and appraise a range of musical genres. 

Opportunities are available for all children to create, play and perform. Children enjoy performing music in class and to audiences such as other classes, key stages, assemblies or through community links.
