Curriculum Summary for Music

In Year 7 all students follow a programme which provides an introduction to Music including the elements such as rhythm, pitch and tempo, as well as performance skills. They study different types of rhythm and learn how to read, write and perform simple rhythms. Singing forms a strong basis of the curriculum in this year, with all students being encouraged to become more confident in using their voices as an instrument. As part of the Keystage 3 curriculum every student in year 7 and 8 will have the opportunity to learn how to play the Ukulele, involving learning how to play simple patterns and learn songs, culminating in performances. Keyboard skills will also be introduced in Year 7 to support students in learning the notes on the treble clef stave. The year ends with students creating Samba schools that they will use to compete against each other in different faculties at Sports Day.

Students will develop skills in music technology by using the latest programming to compose and perform pieces in our Music Technology suite.

Keyboard and Ukulele skills are honed in Year 8 and students will have an opportunity to use these instruments while developing their ensemble playing skills. Students will cover world music topics like reggae and the blues and will form groups and perform pieces within these genres. The practical homework given in KS3 will link to music vocabulary and listening tasks set for homework at the end of each half-term.
