Music

Music

 

At Bottesford Infants School, we aim to build confidence in all areas of music. We encourage all children to perform as musicians and explore both tuned and un-tuned instruments. Children are exposed to music throughout the curriculum and singing is integrated into their daily routine. The children have one assembly per week dedicated to singing, and this is often themed to suit the time of year and/or current celebrations. In some classrooms, to assist the immersive environments, music is played as a background to the children's learning.

 

We have a choir that runs once a week and these children perform in our school concerts and regularly at local events.

 

The music curriculum is structured around the following three areas - performing, composing and appraising. Children learn to listen to music from a variety of musicians/a range of genres, both from the past and more modern times. They are encouraged to discuss and evaluate what they have heard. They are also introduced to creative composition, both in words, symbols and music.

 

Children learn in depth the following musical terms and learn this through knowledge and skills based sessions;

* pitch

* tempo

* pulse

* duration

* timbre

 

These are revisited throughout their time at Bottesford Infants School, so they become familiar and consistent in the application of these skills and also the knowledge and vocabulary that run alongside them.

 

We have a dedicated music teacher that runs the choir and also teaches the year two children to play the recorder. It is incredibly important to us that the children leave, being able to play a musical instrument.

Th children listened to a range of sea based music and selected instruments to recreate those sounds. They worked in a small group, to explore, construct and compose their own piece. They used pictures, symbols and numbers to record their compositions.
