Our music lessons are run by a music specialist from Junior Jam:
At Junior Jam, we believe providing pupils with a rich and diverse music education is fundamental to helping to unlock their creative potential. Our music curriculum sets out to allow children a broad range of musical experiences within primary school, giving pupils the foundation to explore their talents and passions.
Our course is designed to teach the whole music curriculum from Reception to Year 6. We do this by teaching three core subjects, Music Theory with Keyboards, Songwriting with Glockenspiels and Singing, which are delivered across three half terms throughout the year. The remaining three half terms within an academic year will be instrument focused in order to ensure pupils have the opportunity to perform on a variety of tuned and untuned instrumentation from a wide range of different cultures. Our equipment is rotated around our Junior Jam instructors throughout the country ensuring all our schools get a well-rounded mix of instrumentation.
• Music Theory with Keyboards
• Songwriting with Glockenspiels
• Steel Pans
To ensure that the curriculum is progressive and differentiated from year group to year group, the three core subjects your pupils will study are year group specific. We have written the lesson plans with this intent in mind and targeted the learning at that specific year group.
When your pupils commence one of our instrumentation courses, unless they have prior knowledge and experience of the instrument, they will begin by learning the basics of the instrument and will progress through the levels year by year.
Achieving our intent hinges upon seeing the same classes every week for a 45 minute to 1 hour session for a full academic year. We will show our intent through the use of progression maps and curriculum link documents that will evidence how each of our activities hit certain national curriculum points.
We do all of this in the hope that at the end of an academic year, pupils will have accessed a wide range of musical experiences and developed their musical understanding in order to continue their musical journey.
