Music

Through our teaching of Music  we aim to:

        

                         

 

I  – Inclusive. Music is inclusive irrespective of abilities.

N – New Experiences. Pupils have a chance to encounter a wide range of musical experiences throughout their time at school.

S – Styles- Classic to contemporary. Pupils experience listening to and appraising a broad range of musical styles.

P – Participation and Fun. Music should be a fun subject and children are encouraged to participate and enjoy their learning as they develop their knowledge and understanding of the different skills and techniques within our Music Curriculum.

I -Imagination. Pupils are encouraged to use their imagination to improvise and compose their own pieces of music.

R  – Reflecting. Pupils are encouraged to reflect on musical pieces and performances they experience.

E - Engage. We provide engaging and enjoyable Music lessons which are accessible by all pupils.

                    

'Bellfield Junior School' achieved the 'Music Mark' in 2017 & 2019, after being put forward by the Music Service.

Currently, we have the following Peripatetic music provision for music available for children to continue and extend their learning in music: Flute, Clarinet, Guitar and Keyboards (extra lessons paid for.) Children taking these lessons are also working towards musical exams/ grades. Please find our Music Curriculum Matrix & Curriculum Statement below

Try your own Clapping games at home!

New clapping game

 


 Create your own clapping game that you could teach to others. Remember:

  • You can add finger clicks.
  • Cross your hands over.
  • Touch parts of your body if it makes the pattern /rhythm/beat more exciting.
  • Use your voice for sound in certain parts if it fits into your clapping game.
  • Make sure it's challenging for others, but easy enough for them to memorise and learn.
  • Perhaps make them do it backwards.
  • Try it in a 'round.'
  • Make it fun! Experiment with any ideas that you have!

Have a go at this Clapping Challenge if you have time!
