Camrose Primary School

Music Curriculum Overviews

We encourage children to develop music skills of singing, playing tuned and untuned instruments, improvising and composing music, alongside listening and responding to music. They also develop an understanding of the history and cultural context of the music that they listen to and learn how it can be written down.
