At Roundhill the intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a diverse range of historical periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. Our objective is to develop an enjoyment for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the validity and importance of all types of music, and an unbiased respect for the role that music plays in any person’s life.
We intend to ensure that all pupils:
• 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.
Our pupils learn to respond to music and develop their understanding of the elements of music progressively across the school using the Charanga Music resource.
We are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.
By learning about diverse musicians around the world, and listening to their music, our children build cultural awareness and respect for others.
