Hatton Park

Primary School


Music plays an important part in the life of our school. As part of themed learning, children have the opportunity to listen, compose and perform, in an engaging, exciting and innovative way. Through listening, children learn to appreciate many different styles of music from other cultures and times. In composition work, the children learn to improvise, choose and control a range of sounds, blend and layer musical ideas and become more aware of musical elements such as rhythm, pitch, tempo and form. For performance, and especially with singing, the children progress from developing accuracy of melody, rhythm and diction to increasing control of breathing, articulation and awareness of phrasing. Together with this, all children are taught music notation in conjunction with recital skills.
