At Holy Cross Catholic Primary School, we provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms, and to begin to make judgements about the quality of music.
There are four main objectives of teaching music in our school, which are to enable children:
To perform: through singing and using their voices, and by having the opportunity to learn a musical instrument in KS2.
To compose: by creating music on their own and with others, using instruments and technology appropriately.
To transcribe: through knowing and understanding how music is created, produced, communicated and then organised into musical structures, including pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture and structure.
To describe: by listening to, reviewing and evaluation music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of great composers and musicians.
