In Key Stage 1, singing, rhythm and rhyme skills are built upon through regular use of tuned and un-tuned percussion instruments. Pupils are also introduced to pitch and early notation skills.
We exploit music wherever we can across other areas of the curriculum to support learning. Children will regularly sing songs in other areas such as Maths and MFL.
