Early Years and Key Stage 1
In EYFS and Key Stage 1, we follow the Kapow Scheme of Learning to teach music.
Key Stage 2
Music in Key Stage 2 is taught by a specialist music teacher and Choral Director from The Diocese of Leeds Singing Programme. Mr Mander teaches children singing each week, covering National Curriculum Objectives.
Children also perform for the rest of school and parents and carers in assemblies and other events.
Music Curriculum Example
Weekly Singing Practice
All children in Years 1-6 attend a weekly singing practice. Mrs Woffenden visits school to support children to prepare for special events such as liturgy, mass and performances.
These sessions support our pupils to deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith and the significance of music in worship, referencing ‘Virtues to Live By’ where possible. They also build further confidence and enjoyment for singing and music more widely.
