At Yorkley Primary the intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music
is through listening, singing, playing, evaluating, analysing, and composing across a wide variety of historical
periods, styles, traditions, and musical genres. Children will develop and learn the vocabulary of music
enabling them to deepen their subject knowledge and communication skills. The music curriculum is
supported by our five drivers: Active adventure, Building me, Communication, Creativity and Belonging.
Our objective at Yorkley Primary is to develop a curiosity for music, as well as an understanding of how
music is used to communicate ideas and emotions, which can express a sense of belonging and identity. We
are committed to ensuring children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community,
and can use their musical skills, knowledge, and experiences to involve themselves in music, in a variety of
different contexts. Our music curriculum at Yorkley Primary school enables children to develop knowledge
and skills that are communicable to other curriculum areas and is used to promote spiritual, moral, social, and
cultural development as well developing their communication skills.
