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. They 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. In year 6 children will learn and use these songs:
Autumn One – Happy
Autumn Two – Classroom Jazz 2
Spring One – A New Year Carol
Spring Two –You’ve Got A Friend
Summer One – Music And Me
Summer Two – Reflect, Replay and Rewind
