At Yorkswood Primary School during Key Stage 2 children sing songs and play instruments with increasing confidence, skill, expression and awareness of their own contribution to a group or class performance.
They improvise and develop their own musical compositions, in response to a variety of different stimuli with increasing personal involvement, independence and creativity.
The children widen their musical knowledge and explore their thoughts and feelings through responding physically, intellectually and emotionally to a variety of music from different times and cultures.
Each half term, the children learn a new song with opportunities to play instruments.
In year 5 children will learn and use these songs:
Autumn One – Livin’ On A Prayer
Autumn Two – Classroom Jazz 1
Spring One – Make You Feel My Love
Spring Two – The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air
Summer One – Dancing In The Street
Summer Two – Reflect, Replay and Rewind
