Music at St Richard's 

The fact that children can make beautiful music is less significant than the fact that music can make beautiful children. - Cheryl Lavender


Music in Key Stage 1

During Key Stage 1 children are taught to use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and reciting chants and rhymes. Children will explore the use of both tuned and un-tuned instruments in a number of ways and begin to experiment with these instruments to select, create and combine sounds using the inter-related dimensions of music.

Listening with concentration and developing understanding allows the children to begin to express their own musical opinion and tastes. The use of live and pre-recorded music from different historical periods takes the children on a musical journey through the ages and allows cross curricular links to be made
