What is our vision for Music at Somerdale ET?

Children will leave school with a solid understanding of basic musical theory.

This will include:

  • Technical vocabulary.
  • Knowledge of instruments and orchestral families.
  • Be able to read music.
  • Having performed to an audience at least once per academic year. (E.g. Parent share morning, assembly performance, school nativity).
  • Children will leave school with a sense of rhythm and timings.
  • They should be able to play as part of a group either by using percussion, an instrument of their own, or their voice.
  • Children are exposed to high quality choir performances (KS2 choir) from assembly performances and see an example of stage presence and behaviour.


How will our children learn Music?

  • Ensure musical notes are being referred to along-side the correct technical vocabulary.
  • Arrange regularly opportunities for the children to showcase their learning (concerts, assemblies, trips).
  • Ensure singing assemblies are occurring regularly and the children are exposed to a range of song styles. (E.g. Call and response, Parts in an echo, Harmonies etc).
