When do we teach?
Music is Sacred Heart Primary School is taught every 2 weeks. During this time, children across all year groups are learning about the four strands of music, which are:
- The History of Music (KS2)
All four strands coincide with the inter-related dimensions of music, which is an overarching strand that runs throughout our scheme of work.
What scheme do we use for Music?
We are using Kapow! Primary as our scheme for music in Sacred Heart Primary School. This scheme was authored by primary music specialists to ensure that children from EYFS - Year 6 are exposed to the full National Curriculum for music. Each unit focuses on music from a different part of the world and features a bespoke piece of music composed specifically for the scheme, including sheet music, performance and backing tracks.
Each unit that Kapow offers has bespoke planning, assessment and resources for teachers to use in their classrooms. It is an immersive scheme that allows the children to explore their creativity and passion for music.
