At Ham Dingle, we believe that Music should be an enriching, inspirational and comprehensive curriculum. Music is a unique way of communicating that can encourage and motivate children through opportunities for personal expression. Music can reflect the culture and society we live in and so the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand the world we live in, and it is also important in helping children feel part of a community.
Our Music curriculum (the DfE’s Model Music Curriculum) is adapted to follow our solo taxonomy journey through collect (analyse, appraise and immerse), connect (learn musical skills, vocabulary and genre themes) and create (improvise, perform and evaluate). Our core offer provides an opportunity for children to explore a variety of composers, artists, and genres throughout each year group, building and developing on performance skills as children progress through their primary education.
High-quality music education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, and mental well-being of the nation.
Our deepening concepts help our pupils to think like a designer:
- To perform
- To compose
- To describe
- To transcribe
