Snapshot of Music
How we teach Music at St James is split into three strands:
Listen & Appraise
This is where we listen to various examples of the style of music we are studying within a unit and respond by asking and answering questions, giving our opinions, drawing comparisons with other songs and styles.
This forms the main part of our music lessons. In this strand, we acquire a wide range of skills and knowledge and rehearse these in a variety of ways:
As we move through school, we build upon our skills and knowledge.
This is a very important part of our learning as it helps us build confidence and also show off all the skills and knowledge we have learnt!
We are very lucky at St James to celebrate Music through a variety of wider opportunities.
We have a wonderful school choir who sing at school and public events.
In Year 4, a trained and skilled musician shares their expertise with us and works closely with us each week to finetune our musical knowledge and instrumental skills.
