Music

INTENT

 

The role of music at St Helen’s nurtures a love of music in all pupils, from every background and ability.  Children are encouraged to reach their full potential through performing, creating and listening.  The intent is:

  • To sing, play, evaluate, create and compose music
  • That rhythm, pulse and pitch skills are constantly developed, including reproducing sounds from aural memory
  • Knowledge of musical language through the interrelated dimensions: pitch, tempo, dynamics, duration, timbre, structure
  • To create links to other areas of the curriculum, in particular RE
  • To give opportunities for extra-curricular vocal and instrumental lessons and clubs
  • To give opportunities to perform in front of an audience, both in school and outside school
  • To build confidence in all children and encourage pupils to be the very best version of themselves.
