Music Intent

The National Curriculum for music aims to ensure that all pupil:

  • Perform, listen to, review and evaluate music
  • Be taught to sing, create and compose music.
  • Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated.


Lord Street’s intention is that children gain a firm understanding of what music is through listening, singing, playing, analysing and composing across a wide variety of historical periods, styles, traditions and musical genres. Our objective is to develop curiosity for the subject, as well as an understanding and acceptance of the importance of all types of music. We are committed to ensuring the children understand the value and importance of music in the wider community, and are able to use their musical skills, knowledge, and experience to involve themselves in music, in a variety of different contexts.


The music curriculum ensures students sing, listen, play, perform and evaluate. This is embedded in the classroom activities as well as the weekly singing assemblies, various concerts and performances, the learning of instruments, joining our choir club and our Music Mondays. The elements of music are taught in the classroom lessons so that children are able to use some of the language of music to dissect it, and understand how it is made, played, appreciated and analysed. In the classroom students learn how to play an instrument. In doing so they understand the different principle of each method of creating notes, as well as how to read basic music notation. They also learn how to compose focussing on different dimensions of music, which in turn feeds their understanding when listening, playing, or analysing music. Composing or performing using body percussion and vocal sounds is also part of the curriculum, which develops the understanding of musical elements without the added complexity of an instrument.  It is important for children to have this music curriculum as it will provide them with a range of opportunities and experiences.


  • Music will be taught as a stand-alone subject
  • It will be taught for 1 hour a week.
  • Topics to be taught are outlined in the Music curriculum plan and there must be no deviation from this.

The musical opportunities at Lord Street are continuingly growing. We have weekly music lessons in school with Jack and class teachers, in March our choir performed in the Sing Together concert at King George's Hall. They were amazing!! We are also working on our Christmas film which is going to be filmed and put onto the school website.
