How is our Imperial Music Curriculum developed?
Our Music curriculum is planned using the Leicestershire Music scheme of work. These plans have been adapted and refined where needed to ensure that they are relevant and engaging for our children and that they suit each cohort. Our Music curriculum follows six strands split across each of the half-terms and these strands are then built on each year to ensure a clear progression of knowledge and skills within the subject. Please take a look at our Music overview below to find out more.
