Music - KS1 - Year 1 / Year 2

YEAR 1

AUTUMN TERM 1

All About Me (Pulse and Rhythm)

Through listening to a range of different music and playing games, children will learn to identify the difference between pulse and rhythm in a song. They will then consolidate this through listening and performing activities, whilst really getting to know each other.

 

AUTUMN TERM 2

Singing!

Students will develop their vocal skills and really think about singing a melody. They will use a range of techniques from breathing to pitching, in a variety of styles. This will culminate in their Christmas Production.

 

YEAR 2

AUTUMN TERM 1

Animals (West African songs)

Students will learn a traditional Ghanaian song, use simple musical notation and compose some simple call and response rhythms through the theme of Animals.

AUTUMN TERM 2

Singing more!

Students will further their singing ability, through preparing for a Christmas production. They will listen to a range of singers, and identify styles from the genres of Rock through to Classical, and start to discuss the dynamics and mood of the performances. They will then use this to reflect in their own work in their production.
