Music at Lark Hill
Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. Music is taught with the aim of embedding skills and process systematically through the key stages, resulting in confident and competent musicians by the time our children leave us at the end of Year 6. By providing children with the opportunity to engage in various styles of music from a range of cultures, composers and time periods, we will enable them to practise skills they have learnt in a range of contexts.
At Lark Hill we aim to deliver a high quality music education that engages and inspires children to develop a love of music, following the objectives from the National Curriculum which can be found here. Our children will develop their understanding of how music is created, take part in composing and performing music using their voice and other instruments and take a reflective approach when listening to music of varying genres.
We want our children to enjoy music and therefore we provide extra curricular opportunities through the choir and a variety of performances throughout the academic year.
- We want our children to be creative and imaginative within a musical context.
- We want our children to understand rhythm and pitch and use these when composing their own original pieces of music.
- We aim for all of our children to recognise and begin to use musical notation.
- We want all of our children to enjoy and appreciate a wide range of musical compositions and pieces.
- We aim for all of our children to have the opportunity to perform in musical events both on and off site.
