Music is the soundtrack to our lives, a universal language that represents one of the highest forms of creativity. At Fulfen, we value music because it is a powerful and unique form of communication that can change and impact the way in which children feel, think and act.
In our school, music brings our school community together through the shared experience of whole-school singing, ensemble playing and through enjoyment of listening to friends perform. Our curriculum is designed to inspire pupils to develop a life-long love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
Through our music lessons, children are actively involved with a wide range of musical opportunities. They develop their singing voices, use body percussion and whole-body actions and learn to handle and play classroom instruments effectively to create and express their own and others’ music.
All children are actively encouraged and given the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument, with additional instrumental lessons being delivered by visiting peripatetic staff. Through a range of whole class, group and individual activities, children have opportunities to explore sounds, listen actively, compose and perform.
Our subject policy and a detailed curriculum map and progression document can be found at the bottom of this page.
