At Key Stage 2, music activities should enable learners to build on the skills, knowledge and understanding acquired during the Foundation Phase.


Music education enables learners to engage with and enjoy making music.  Through active involvement in performing, composing and appraising, learners will develop their sensitivity to and understanding of music.  Learners will develop musical skills relating to the control, manipulation and presentation of sound.  At Key Stage 2, these skills include singing, playing instruments and practising; improvising, composing and arranging music; and listening to and appraising music.


Learners should improve their performing, composing and appraising by developing and applying their thinking and communication skills, and give due regard to health and safety.
