Curriculum Intent For Music
In the kingfisher Federation, we believe music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. We aim to inspire and engage all our pupils to develop a love of music, be able to critically engage with music and allow them to compose, perform, evaluate and listen to music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of great composers and musicians.
How does this subject develop spirituality?
Through Music we teach children to tune into their own thoughts and feelings. When listening to a variety of music children will express their feelings and emotions in response to what they have heard. We encourage children to share artistically through performing and composing.
Assessment in this subject is carried out across the unit of learning. It involves questioning and observations by staff as well as children’s self-assessment. Children are given time and encouragement to celebrate successes, as well as think, respond and consider how they would improve next time.
We consider a final assessment at the end of the unit of learning, against the intended learning outcomes. These are uploaded to our shared file to inform planning by teachers and subject leaders.
