Music Overview

Our Music Curriculum
Our Music Co-ordinator is Miss Wendy Morton

Through the music curriculum at Amble Links we want our pupils to know that everyone can be 'musical'. By 'keeping it simple' and focusing predominantly on singing and learning to play the Ocarina, the children will gain more depth and more breadth in their musical learning. They will be able to listen to music carefully and use their voices and play instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression.


The purpose of Music in the National Curriculum is to engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talents as musicians therefore increasing self-confidence, creativity and a sense of achievement.  The curriculum aims for all pupils to perform, listen to and review music; learn to sing and use their own voices to create and compose music; and understand the dimensions of music including pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture structure and appropriate musical notations.


At Amble Links First School children in Key Stages 1 & 2 take part in a 30 minute weekly singing lesson with a specialist tutor from Music Partnership North and build there singing skills following the SingUp scheme of work.  A progression of their learning for each half term can be found below.


From September 2021, the teaching of other aspects of music in Key Stages 1 & 2 will be through all children learning to play the Ocarina.......
