Our Music Curriculum
At St John Vianney, we follow the National Curriculum for music to ensure that all children have access to a balanced and varied curriculum. Teachers have access to high quality planning to enable them to deliver lessons which show a progression of skills throughout their school journey. Children are provided opportunities to learn a variety of instruments and perform individually or as part of a group. They are encouraged to listen and appraise different genres of music, created from a variety of composers and explore their own musical preferences.
Our aim is to develop each child’s musical interests and awareness to enable them to become musicians who are confident in sharing their talents.
Year 4 are currently taking part in the Wider Opportunity programme and as a class are learning to play the clarinet. Children in Year 5 and 6 have the opportunity to have small group music lessons to continue their musical journey on their flutes and clarients.
