At Mansfield Green E-ACT Primary Academy, we aim to provide an engaging and purposeful approach to the music curriculum, inspiring children’s sense of confidence, achievement and creativity.
The National Curriculum states that all children should:
- Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music.
- Be taught to sing, create and compose music.
- Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated.
Using the national curriculum, interactive resources and cooperation with external agencies, children will learn through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing.
These skills will begin in the foundation stage; exploring different rhymes and rhythms. As children progress through school, they will develop an understanding of musical composition, organising and manipulating ideas as well as reproducing sounds from aural memory.
We understand music’s important role in children’s social, emotional and cultural development as well as the wider community. This is highlighted by the range of opportunities throughout the school to develop children’s musicality including violin lessons, concerts, vocal coaching and choir performances at Symphony hall.
The music curriculum at Mansfield Green E-ACT Primary Academy has been chosen to ensure progression, a development of knowledge and skills whilst engendering a love for and enjoyment of the subject by all pupils in our primary school.
Our aim is to ensure that our musicians are successful individuals in their chosen field/career.
