MUSIC AT SDPA
My name is Nicola Whitby and I lead the subject of Music across our school. In this role, I have a strategic overview of this subject and regularly liaise with teachers, in all year groups, to ensure that your child has a rich and exciting experience of Music. I also coordinate whole-school, ‘one off’ events, linked to musical celebration.
Below you will find a lot of information about your child’s journey through our school as a musician.
If you have any questions about this subject, or have relevant expertise that you feel you could offer, then please do not hesitate in contacting me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here you will find my Intent, Implementation and Impact statement for Music.
Here you will find my Music Route Planner for 2023-2024, where you can find both the name of the IPC unit being learnt and the term in which it will be taught.
Here you will find my Progression of Skills, Knowledge and Understanding document, which will allow you to see how your child will develop, as a musician, as they move through our school.
Here you will find my Golden Nuggets documents, which layout the essential music knowledge that your child should be able to recall, by the end of the learning sequence. They also make great discussion point questions, when you ask your child, "What did you do at school today?" and they respond with, "Nothing."
Here you will be able to discover all of the subject specific vocabulary (which we call Star Words), linked to each IPC unit that contains Music.
