Key Stage 2 Music
At Key Stage 2, pupils actively engage with the core musical activities: composing, performing and listening.
Music enables pupils to develop their creativity. As they further develop their vocal and instrumental skills, they also create musical stories, pictures, patterns, conversations and accompaniments. Meanwhile, they think and talk about characteristics within the music that they create, perform and listen to.
For examples of suitable classroom activities, see:
- Listening and responding to their own and others’ music-making
- Singing and performing with simple instruments
- Working creatively with sound
If you are developing a programme of study for Music, please refer to the statutory requirements of the Northern Ireland Curriculum.
