Children at Atwood have access to a broad Music curriculum to foster a love and enjoyment from musical activities. We give children exposure to different musical experiences so that they can find their own musical expertise.
The Music Curriculum Map sets out provision for each year group. A sequential vocal curriculum runs from Nursery to Year Two. In Key Stage Two, the focus turns to instrumental and ensemble skills. In line with our local context, all children get the opportunity to play an instrument regardless of background
Singing assemblies take place weekly. Peripatetic teachers offer dedicated group lessons in specific instruments. Concerts are held in July to showcase learning and progress over the year. One Voice and Ignite choirs are made up of KS2 children who rehearse and perform through the year.
External providers (eg Rhythm Studio) provide access to popular music experience through technology. The Ark Music Programme provides support and training for teachers.
