Music intent at Mevagissy Primary School.
The way we teach music at Mevagissey Primary school, enables children to understand musical concepts through a repetition-based approach to learning. Learning about the same musical concept through different musical activities enables a more secure, deeper learning and mastery of musical skills.
Implementation of Music at Mevagissey Primary School
At Mevagissey Primary School we understand that musical teaching and learning is not neat or linear. The strands of musical learning are part of the learning spiral. Over time, our children both develop new musical skills and concepts, and re-visit established musical skills and concepts. Repeating musical skills means their progress and understanding is constantly deepening. Mastery means both a deeper understanding of musical skills and concepts and learning something new.
At Mevagissey Primary School, we teach one unit of music each term which is broken down into weekly 1 hour session.
Each Unit of Work comprises the of strands of musical learning which correspond with the national curriculum for music:
- Listening and Appraising
- Musical Activities
- Warm-up Games
- Optional Flexible Games
- Playing instruments
