Music in Waterloo Primary

At Waterloo Primary, our music curriculum is fully inclusive and intends to inspire creativity, develop self-expression and encourage our children on their musical journeys. Music is a means by which we strengthen our bond as a school and connect with our local community. We hope to foster a lifelong love of music and broaden the children’s cultural understanding by exposing them to a diverse range of high quality musical experiences. By listening and responding to different musical styles and by developing as singers, performers and composers, all children will be able to become confident, reflective musicians. 



The aims of our Music curriculum are to develop pupils who:


  • Can sing and use their voices individually and as part of a group.
  • Create and compose music on their own and with others.
  • Use technology appropriately when composing and improvising.
  • Have opportunities to learn a musical instrument.
  • Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated.
  • Listen to, review and evaluate the work of great composers and musicians from a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions.
  • Enjoy and have an appreciation of a range of different musical styles e.g. Classical, Jazz, Hip Hop, Pop, Rock etc.
  • Use and understand musical language and include musical features in their own work.
  • Make judgements about the quality of music.
  • Have opportunities to play a wide variety of tuned and untuned instruments.
  • Have opportunities to take part in different performances.
