Horsley Woodhouse Primary School


Pupils’ understanding and enjoyment of music is developed through activities that give them an opportunity to use sounds and respond to music individually, in pairs, in groups and as a class. In addition they are taught to make appropriate use of ICT to explore and record sounds; to perform and compose pieces and listen and appraise performances. A wide range of percussion instruments is used in conjunction with various pitched instruments including recorders. Pupils are taught basic musical notation as part of their study and creation of music. Pupils are introduced to a variety of music from other times and cultures, including music from great composers. Children have the opportunity to prepare performances for parents and members of the community on special occasions throughout the year.
