At Lubbins Park Primary Academy we value music as a subject. We aim to develop children’s music ability and their confidence to perform. Alongside this we aim to develop the children’s appreciation of different music, including music from different countries, cultures and periods of history. A cross curricular approach is taken to music. All year groups combine discrete music lessons with the use of music in other subject areas. Music is also used day to day when attending assemblies, tidying up and lunchtime clubs.
In the EYFS, the children have access to high quality music provision both indoors and outside. There is a clear progression in skills from EYFS to KS1 through the Music Express Programme.
Our violin short course enables the children to learn how to read notation, understand rhythm and play a musical instrument. The short course is taught in daily lessons over a six week period for all children in Years 2 to 6. Children are awarded certificates at the end of their short course to record the children's progress and attainment.
