We plan tasks that allow pupils to show their understanding, both of a standalone lesson and as part of a sequence of lessons, whilst making links to previous learning in other topics and year groups.
"Music lessons throughout my time from Year 3 to Year 6 have allowed me to develop an understanding of what makes a great musician. I've been able to apply my understanding from my music lessons to both my singing, as a member of school choir, and learning other instruments. These skills will help me so much when I get to secondary school and beyond, as I would like to go into a career in Music when I get older." - Amelia
"In my composition, I used a mixture of different notes including crotchets, quaver pairs and rests." - Niamh
"I repeated some notes in my composition to make it catchier and easy to sing along to." - Daisy
"Not only can I listen and speak about the similarities between the songs we've looked at for this topic, but also I can make links to other topics we've studied in other year groups. For example, I have been able to comment on the use of dynamics (how loud or quiet the music is) using my prior knowledge from other year groups." - Alfie
