At Badger Hill, children can achieve by listening and appreciating different styles of music and how it can influence people in different ways. It help us to relax, make us feel happy or even change our mood entirely. In EYFS and KS1 pupils begin to develop essential musicianship skills such as rhythm, pulse, beat and pitch in addition to lots of listening, appraising and enjoying! They have the perfect opportunity to showcase this at our annual Nativity play. The Key Stage 2 music curriculum builds on these skills and also incorporates singing in unison and in parts, instrumental performance, composition and music history. Children also take part in a weekly singing assembly and this is dedicated to improving vocal technique, understanding how music is put together and improving the standard of singing across school.
