Most music lessons across KS1 and KS2 are taught following Kapow. EYFS use Kapow resources when it is applicable.
Kapow's primary music scheme takes a holistic approach to music, in which the individual strands are woven together to create engaging and enriching learning experiences:
- The history of music
- The inter-related dimensions of music
Kapow lessons follow a similar structure across the school:
- Attention grabber
- Main event
- Wrapping Up
In each lesson, the children will actively participate in musical activities drawn from a range of styles and traditions, developing their musical skills and their understanding of how music works.
All children in school have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument outside of lessons. This includes: clarinet, flue, trumpet, cornet, saxophone and guitar. Weekly choir sessions take place which are open to children across KS1 and KS2. Children in KS2 have the opportunity to attend ‘Young Voices’, the largest children’s choir concerts in the world. Recorder and ukulele club in also open to KS2 at various points in the year. Weekly ‘Singing and Praise’ collective worships offer another opportunity for every child in school to sing.
