At Holywell, we use our school vision, Flowing, Strengthening, and Deepening, to guide our music intent:
- Flowing – developing a secure understanding of improvisation, composition, pulse, rhythm, pitch and different musical genres.
- Strengthening – becoming more confident as a musician when performing, developing correct body and instrument positioning and developing excitement, enjoyment and application of music
- Deepening – developing musical appreciation, understanding of different genres, using music to support emotional literacy
We use the SingUp Units of Work to teach music to enable children to understand musical concepts through a repetition-based approach to learning. Learning about the same musical concept through different musical activities enables a more secure, deeper learning and mastery of musical skills.
