The exciting things I will learn in Music at St Joseph’s are:


At St Joseph's, we subscribe to the Lancashire Music Hub resources which allows us access to a wide range of music and support for the whole school. Through the different topics we aim to provide the children with key skills such as; 

· knowing and understanding how sounds are made and then organised into musical structures;

· knowing how music is made through a variety of instruments;

· knowing how music is composed and written down;

· knowing how music is influenced by the time, place and purpose for which it was written;

· developing the interrelated skills of performing, composing and appreciating music.


In Keystage Two, we are beginning to move away from Charanga and have begun to develop our own units of work using our own skills progression document and linked more to the topics taught in class.  


The exciting things that take place in Music are:


Exciting weekly lessons.

Samba Bamba Workshop exploring Samba Batacuda. 

Young Voices 'Big Sing' event. 


Why do I need to know this? 

Music is a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children. It is a vehicle for personal expression and it can play an important part in the personal development of people. Music reflects our culture and society, and so the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand the world they live in.
