Curriculum Intent - Music
During their time at Bottesford Junior School, we expect our pupils to be proficient in a range of musical skills, including singing, notation-reading, instrumental performance (recorder, ukulele, keyboard and Garage Band), composition and music appreciation.
We hope that our pupils will foster a genuine love of music, having exposed them to a large range of genres and styles from all over the world, and that this open-minded approach to music will continue throughout their education and into adult life. In singing in assemblies, church services at our local church (St Peter’s) and other events we aim to develop a sense of belonging to their local and wider community. As in PSHE, RE and other humanity subjects, our hope is that music allows our pupils to gain a sense of empathy and an understanding of the wider world. We also hope that the enjoyment gained in listening to and performing music will help in developing self-confidence and a desire to take their musical skills further in future years.
Our whole school leader for Music is Mr Robson
