“Music can change the world because it can change people.” Bono

Our music curriculum is based on the Sparkyard scheme of work. This places singing at its heart, reinforced through our weekly whole school singing assemblies. Children gain a steadily increasing understanding of musical elements; developing listening skills, musical vocabulary and performance skills. They are introduced to a wide range of cultural and historical musical genres.
