Welcome to Music at St Nicolas and St Mary CE Primary School!
Here you will find our music curriculum map as well as music milestones detailing the journey our children make in music from year 1 to year 6. As a school, our passion for music is evident throughout any school day! The innovative and specialist teaching that all our pupils receive as part of the music learning journey means that children develop not only skills and knowledge in music but also an appreciation of the joy that music can bring.
Our Music Vision
Through the subject of music we want children to have access to a wide range of high quality music. We want to inspire all children, including disadvantaged and/or pupils with SEND, to develop their full musical potential, to gain a range of musical skills and to enrich the rest of their lives with the enjoyment of music.
In each year of their school life, children will experience whole-class high quality music tuition by being taught by a specialist music tutor using a suite of electronic keyboards or through an innovative online interactive platform.
Children will have the opportunity to attend music clubs such as wiggle and jiggle, recorder, harmonica, ‘Toots, Dudes and Flutes’, school band, St Nic’s singers and samba band. The school offers children the opportunity to attend one-to-one or small group tuition with external agencies such as guitar, drum and keyboard.
Children will learn how to appreciate and understand music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians. We seek to give children the opportunity to listen to and perform a variety of musical genres.
