“What I have in my heart and soul must find a way out. That’s the reason for music.” Ludwig Van Beethoven.
What is Music?
Music is an arrangement of sounds to create an impact on your emotions.
Music at Cockton Hill Junior School:
Children are introduced to a wide range of musical activities that will develop their music skills and musical enjoyment. We encourage their ability to listen attentively to a varied range of songs, classical music and traditional melodies; children will appraise music, discussing their opinions using musical language and apply this knowledge when being introduced to a variety of instruments in their class environment. As children progress, they will learn to recognise musical notation, using this to create their own compositions, and develop an understanding of the origin of the music and the era in which it was created.
School leaders are currently updating planning overviews in line with the changes to our curriculum. Please contact school if you require further information about this curriculum area.
