Music Intent

At Abingdon Primary School, it is our intent that we make music an enjoyable learning experience. Through the effective teaching and learning of the knowledge, skills and understanding in music we will maintain and stimulate pupil curiosity, interest and enjoyment. Out teaching focuses on the children’s ability to sing in tune and with other people. Through singing songs children learn about the structure and organisation of music. At Abingdon we believe that it is important to provide a cultural outlook for our children, therefore we teach them to listen to and appreciate different styles of music. 

As children get older, we expect them to maintain their concentration for longer and to listen to more extended pieces of music. Children develop descriptive skills in music when learning about how music can represent feelings and emotions. We teach them the disciplined skills of recognising pulse and pitch. Also, we teach the children how to work with others to compose music and perform for an audience.


Our aims are to:

fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum for Music,

provide a broad and balanced curriculum,

ensure the progressive development of knowledge and skills,

 confidently perform by singing either solo or as part of a group,

enjoy and have an appreciation for different styles of music,

describe music using a wide range of musical vocabulary to accurately describe and appraise

 

Our main priority at Abingdon Primary School is to teach and perfect the skills implemented by the National Curriculum for Music. It is intended to provide greater clarity and flexibility, allowing for the development and progression in learning. At Abingdon Primary School, we are lucky enough to have specialist Music Teachers from 'Junior Jam', teaching the children Music each week. This ensures that the children recieve a broad and balanced Music Curriculum, which is scaffolded appropriatley throughout the Key Stages, and provides the children with opportunities to explore and play a variety of instruments.

 

Please find attatched below, a 'Junior Jam' Music Curriculum overview, which details the Course Overview, National Curriuclum Links and Non-Statutory Music Guidance for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The Units of Work of the children willl be following throughout the Summer Term are detailed below, and the planning and knowledge organisers for each Unit of Work are also attatched below.

KS1 Children - Music Theory Lite with Keyboards

KS2 Children - Music Theory with Keyboards.

School Choir - 'Abingdon Singers'

We run the school choir every Tuesday after school from 3.30pm until 4.15pm. The school choir is free to join and is open to pupils in KS2. In the school choir, the children will learn how to use their voices properely and effectively to sing a range of different styles of music.

The 'Abingdon Singers' enjoy performing for the school every half term and often go on trips out of school to perform. In the past, we have had the opportuntity to perform Christmas carols at a local care home. We are hoping to perform at Hazel Grove Music Festival in October 2022.

Our latest performance was during Autumn 2, where the children held an in-house carol concert for the rest of the school. The children sang beautifully and performed like true professionals!21-01-2022 161109.jpg

Rocksteady Workshop and Band 

On Friday 13th May, the children had a fantastic time joining in with a Rock Music Assembly and a subsequent workshop, delivered by 'Rocksteady'! The children were invitied to play a variety of instruments and form their own band. Some of the teachers also formed a band and performed for the rest of the school - they were amazing! Rocksteady are going to be carrying out tuiton on Thursday Afternoon's and also run an after-club, in the coming weeks!
