Music Curriculum

2021 - 2022

Music.png

Children at Bramley Sunnyside use the Kapow Primary music scheme, first and foremost, to help them to feel that they are musical and to develop a life-long love of music.  We focus on developing the skills, knowledge and understanding that our children need in order to become confident performers, composers and listeners.  Our curriculum introduces children to music from all around the world and across generations, teaching children to respect and appreciate the music of all traditions and communities.

Children will develop the musical skills of singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, improvising and composing music, and listening and responding to music.  They will develop an understanding of the history and cultural context of the music that they listen to and learn how music can be written down.  Through music, our curriculum helps children develop transferable skills such as team-working, leadership, creative thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and presentation and performance skills.  These skills are vital to children’s development as learners and have a wider application in their general lives outside and beyond school.

Our musical opportunities also forge links with our community.  All year groups have the opportunity to attend and perform at our local church, St. Francis’ in Bramley, for Harvest and Easter services.  Our choir has various opportunities to perform including an annual Christmas service at Rotherham Minster and our Performing Arts club enable children to develop skills and participate in musical theatre productions.  Children also have the opportunity to learn a variety of additional instruments through our partnership with Rotherham Music Service.
