What does Music look like at Archbishop Hutton’s?

Our Music curriculum inspires children to develop a love of music. A range of music forms are used throughout the key stages including composing, exploring the sounds of different instruments and performances as musicians. Singing is highly        important part of life at our school. Weekly singing assemblies take place to teach children how to sing with a sense of pitch and melody. They are taught how to warm up their voices, sing in rounds and harmony, and build up a repertoire of songs. 

Children are encouraged to perform, using their musical talents to increase self-confidence and the resilience to keep practising.Progression of knowledge, skills and understanding is carefully planned, reviewed and adapted yearly to ensure that children’s learning builds effectively over time.

To ensure the content is thorough and teachers are using the best resources available, we use the Kapow Music Curriculum to deliver our high quality learning. The knowledge taught across our Music Curriculum can be found here. 

Why is Music an important part of our curriculum?

Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.

Students who practice with musical instruments improve their hand-eye coordination and can develop motor skills when playing music. Over time, they develop their critical engagement with music.  Skills which can be applied in other areas of the curriculum. Introducing music in the early childhood years can help foster a positive attitude toward learning and curiosity. Artistic education develops the whole brain and develops a child’s imagination.
