From our Early Year Foundation Stage (Reception Class) to Year 6, we want all our children to love music and know how it can enhance their life. We want them to experience a high-quality Music curriculum that allows them to develop this understanding and realise their talents as musicians.

We believe that music can boost self-confidence.  Our children will have the opportunity to engage with a wide range of musical styles and to have experience of composing and performing their own music arrangements. We want our children to engage critically with musical activities. 

Our children will have the chance to compose and listen to a wide range of music from a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.  They will learn to play a range of instruments from rhythm notation cards and music scores, including those created themselves. We will support them to develop the confidence to learn to sing and to use their voices, to create and compose music on their own and with others, to have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, to use technology appropriately and have the opportunity to progress to the next level of musical excellence.

They will learn about pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations and how to discuss music using accurate vocabulary and knowledge. In learning about a diverse range of musicians, they will develop their opinions about aspects of music culture.

We use Charanga to enhance our Music offer.


Children can learn to play instruments at Unsworth in a variety of ways. Y5 class are given the opportunity to learn the violin across the year with Miss Geelan. Front Row music come into school every Wednesday and lead ukulele and guitar lessons. 

If you have any issues regarding music at Unsworth or would like your child to start playing a musical instrument call in and speak to a member of the Admin team.  Lastly, music is a gift that can be given to a child for life! Please support your children in this area of the curriculum as mush as you can.
