Music Statement of Intent:
At Wilbraham Primary School, we intend to make Music an enjoyable, creative and social experience. In the early years, children begin to develop a love of singing and music making, by acquiring their first skills in recognising dynamics, pulse, rhythm and simple melody and sharing and making music as part of a group, whilst developing their individual confidence. As children move into key stage one, they expand these skills, participating in percussion lessons, taught by a specialist, to build their confidence in music making and performing, as part of a group. Key Stage 2 then progress onto tuned percussion, to further allow an exploration of melody and texture. Our whole school listening initiative ensures that all children are exposed to a variety of live and recorded music, from a range of traditions and cultures, with age-appropriate creative and critical responses and subject vocabulary. Our school singing group take part in a number of community projects and perform at buildings of cultural significance in and around our city.
