Music

Ambition

Pineham Barns provides a whole school music curriculum to promote an opportunity for children to express their creativity and develop their confidence. Our curriculum progresses each year within three main musical skills:

  • Perform
  • Compose and Explore
  • Listen, Reflect and Appraise.

Through these skills, the children’s knowledge will develop each year to include new musical terminology and techniques to enhance their musical understanding and improve their musical ability.

 Implementation

In order for our curriculum to build on current knowledge and develop the children’s skills, it has been organised into learning objectives for each year group within the skills of:

  • Perform
  • Compose and Explore
  • Listen, Reflect and Appraise

Each objective builds on the previous years by developing the skill’s complexity and application. In each year group new knowledge and concepts are introduced to ensure the children’s musical experiences broaden over their time. Our progressive skill-based curriculum enables teachers to further challenge or support children to ensure every child can achieve and make progress in their musical education.

We also work closely with Northamptonshire Musical and Performing Arts Trust (NMPAT) to ensure that our children are inspired by musicians and have the opportunity to learn from them. Therefore, we link with the Trust whenever possible to complement and enhance our curriculum offer through tuition and other opportunities.

 Impact

Our curriculum encourages the children at Pineham Barns to explore music, by immersing themselves in different creative opportunities that allow them to work collaboratively, whilst enabling them to develop their own love of music and individual talents.
