St John's CE (VA) J and I School

Our intent is to develop pupils who …

Are inspired to develop a love of music.
Can listen critically to different genres of music and create their own compositions.
Have a strong knowledge of dynamics, pitch, tempo, duration, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notation.


How do we promote learning in Music?

We will encourage pupils to be successful musicians – increasing their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.

What does Music look like at St John's?

We use the ‘Music Express’ schemes of work which provide a progression of skills which build on previous knowledge in each year group.
The children will learn how to use their voices and in KS2 will learn how to play the djembe.
