Our School App Stay connected on the go...
At Royal Park, we understand the profound impact that Music has on children. Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Within the school, we follow the Music Express programme by Collins Connect. Music Express provides high quality lessons, written by experts in the field of music education. It provides a quality and engaging music curriculum, with a clear progression of skills and knowledge from Year 1 to Year 6. The essence of Music Express is to create a topic-based, cross-curricular approach to support children's learning in music and across other subjects through music. A steady progression plan has been built into Music Express, both within each year and from one year to the next, ensuring consistent musical development.
Devised especially for classroom teachers, whether generalist or specialist, Music Express is:
- musically diverse
- fully resourced
- accessible to non-music readers
By using Music Express as the basis of our scheme of work, we can ensure that we are fulfilling the aims for musical learning stated in the English National Curriculum: The English National Curriculum states 'That all pupils: perform, listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.'
