Music is a universal language, for everyone to create and enjoy. We aim to provide a musical experience for all children that is enjoyable, inspiring, memorable and accessible to all. Our children will be able to listen to and value a range of musical styles, sharing their viewpoint respectfully and eloquently. They will develop the confidence to sing and compose pieces on their own and with others. The children at Bozeat will have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument and use technology appropriately.
We have chosen to use the Collins Music Express Scheme in order to ensure that it linked with current national and local expectations. Collins provides many examples of music styles and genres from different times and places. These are explored through the language of music via active learning, performing and composing activities which enable understanding of the context and genre. The aim of the scheme is to provide children with the opportunity to progress to the next level of their creative excellence. Teachers are able to produce inclusive lessons for all children to access the musical curriculum in a fun and engaging way, further promoting a love of learning. It is ideal for specialist and non-specialist teachers and provides lesson plans, assessment, clear progression and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources to support every lesson.
Music is a universal language to be shared by all. We want our children and staff to become expert, experienced musicians who can find the joy in music as listeners, appraisers, composers and performers. We have chosen Collins as a scheme of work which offers a topic-based repetitive approach to support children's learning in music. A steady progression plan has been built into Collins within each lesson, each unit, each year and from one year to the next, ensuring consistent musical development.
Appreciate music by listening, appraising and performing. Sing, compose and play.
The above key concepts define what we want our pupils to have achieved and to continue to achieve through their lives once they step out of Bozeat. By continuing to celebrate music as a whole school and to share the opportunity for sharing singing and performing it is possible to see how much music continues to be valued, for the experience and joy of our children and staff.
