St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Music at St Mary's 

We love to sing in collective worship

We work with Rosis to have really interesting drumming lessons each week.

What a rare treat! Year 6 got to go to St Bernard's to see the singer from The Wanted in action!-March 2019

We love to incorporate singing into our worships.

Young Voices January 2019. Don't we look great in our whites?

Young Voices January 2019. Yes, that IS Tony Hadley singing! Apparently, our mums and dads say he was once in the charts!

January 2018-2019- We had a great time at 'Young Voices'. This is the first time St Mary's has been to young voices. Look at our amazing new banner. You should be able to see it from Space!

St Mary’s MUSIC Coverage

Music Learning Rationale and Skill Development

Throughout pupils’ time at St Mary’s children will develop their musical understanding, research and enquiry skills. We aim to see development and skills progression in the following key areas:

·         Performing

·         Composing

·         Appraising

·         Listening and Applying

*Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians

*Learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical experience

*Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the interrelated dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations.

Responsibility for Coverage Across School

For all classes in Key Stage 1 and Key stage 2, there will be a substantial opportunity for you to cover much of the more technical aspects of the Music curriculum within the one term percussion lessons you will take part in.

However, it is expected that opportunities to teach Music throughout and across the curriculum will be taken. When you do this, please ensure you take a record of the event and put it on your website. The co-ordinator will periodically access the website to evidence any teaching and learning in Music that has taken place so please put evidence on.

It is not enough to expect the whole Music curriculum to be taught in the 1 term you have percussion.
