Key Stage 1 Music

Music enables pupils to develop their creativity by investigating, combining and experimenting with sounds.

At Key Stage 1, pupils actively engage with the core musical activities: composing, performing and listening.

Building on their learning at Foundation Stage, they continue to develop singing and instrumental skills, and further develop their skills of listening and responding to music.
