A high quality Music education is one that engages pupils and increases self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. At Orgill Primary School our goal is to inspire pupils to develop a love of many different genres of music and advance their talent as musicians.
The aims of Music in our school are to ensure that all pupils:
- Perform, listen to and discuss music from a range of historical periods, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.
- Learn to sing and use their voices to create and compose music independently and as a part of groups, and to have the opportunity to experiment with musical instruments and music technology.
- Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated using appropriate musical notation and how pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture and structure affect a composition.
At Orgill Primary School we teach Music through a Learning Challenge Curriculum that requires pupils to take ownwership of their own learning and experiences. We teach our children to investigate answers to a series of questions or learning challenges and encourage them to reflect upon and review their learning throughout a unit of work.
Opportunities are also provided for children to develop their wider musical education through extra-curricular activities such as choir.
