Class music lessons follow the Kapow schemes of work.
Kapow provides teachers with clear and progressive lesson plans, assessment, and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources to support every lesson. The Scheme supports all the requirements of the national curriculum.
In line with the curriculum for music and guidance from Ofsted, this Scheme moves away from the previous levels and learning objective/outcome concepts to an integrated, practical, exploratory and child-led approach to musical learning.
How the Scheme is structured
Each Unit of Work comprises of strands of musical learning which correspond with the national curriculum for music:
1. Listening and Appraising
2. Musical Activities
a. Warm-up Games
b. Optional Flexible Games
d. Playing instruments
The school works closely with the Slough Music Service who provide whole class instrumental lessons to 2 classes each year.
KS2 children also have the opportunity to have paid for individual instrumental lessons on the violin, piano or guitar.
The school has a choir who rehearse weekly and lead our Church services as well as performing at various venues across the year.
