What is Music?
Music is generally defined as the art of arranging sound to create some combination of form, harmony, melody, rhythm or otherwise expressive content.
Music at Phillimore
In order to ensure children improve their music knowledge, understanding and skills, we ensure our curriculum builds on prior knowledge, skills and experiences. To ensure a cohesive and progressive Music curriculum through school from EYFS to Year 6, we use the ‘Kapow Music’, a digital primary music curriculum resource authored by primary music specialists, to support our planning, teaching and learning and assessment in Music across our school
At Phillimore children can expect to hear different music as they enter assembly. We have a dedicated singing assembly on a Wednesday morning where children are encouraged to develop a love of music and express themselves through their voice. The songs they learn are to work towards a concert or play so pupils are able to experience the joy of performing for others. Music theory and listening skills are taught during Friday Morning tasks where the whole school takes part in music challenges.
We are also excited to continue our journey with the Young Voices Choir in September 2022.
