Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. Our music curriculum aims to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement. Music is essentially a practical subject which will be enjoyed by all our pupils. Children at Linacre Primary will have opportunities to perform, compose, listen and appraise. In Year 3 and Year 4 children have a year of weekly music lessons led by an expert in the music field. Children in Year 3 learn about music notation, composition and the elements of music when learning the recorder. In Year 4 the children’s theoretical and practical skills are developed further when learning how to play a brass instrument, play as a group and perform before an audience.
