Palmarsh Primary School

More Than A School


At Palmarsh, we follow the Kapow Primary’s  music scheme, which takes a holistic approach to music - the individual strands below are woven together to create engaging and enriching learning experiences:


• Performing

• Listening

• Composing

• The history of music

• The inter-related dimensions of music


Each five-lesson unit combines these strands within a cross-curricular topic designed to capture pupils’ imagination and encourage them to explore music enthusiastically.


Over the course of the scheme, children will be taught how to sing fluently and expressively, and play tuned and untuned instruments accurately and with control. They will learn to recognise and name the interrelated dimensions of music – pitch, duration, tempo, timbre, structure, texture ad dynamics – and use these expressively in their own improvisations and compositions.
