We live in an ever-changing world, where music can connect us all. We, at Moorlands C of E Primary Academy believe that in our school, music can bring communities together through the shared endeavour of whole-school singing, ensemble playing, experimenting with the creative process, listening to music and performing. Music can enrich individual lives as well as a school’s wider community.
At Moorlands, we build on the Early Years Framework by following the Music National Curriculum Framework 2014. We aim to enable every young person to experience music and make musical progression in both fundamental musical techniques and musical knowledge. Throughout their primary years, we strive to ensure that our children are able to steadily increase their development of musicianship within the strands of singing, listening, composing and performing. As they reach Key Stage Two, we offer our children the opportunity to play a tuned instrument and to begin to understand musical notations.
It is our hope that our music curriculum engages and inspires all children to develop a love of music and to begin their journey of becoming talented and confident musicians.
