Curriculum Music


Music is a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children. At Worlaby Academy music is a vehicle for personal expression and it can play an important part in personal development.

Music reflects the multi-cultural society which we live in, and so the teaching and learning of music enables children to better understand the world that they live in. Besides being creative and enjoyable, music can also be a highly academic and creative subject. It also plays an important part in helping children feel part of a community.

We provide opportunities for all children to create, play, perform and enjoy music, to develop the skills and to appreciate a wide variety of musical forms.

In Worlaby academy, there is no set amount of curriculum time allocated to Music. Time allocated for some parts of the teaching of Music is linked to rehearsals for productions and assemblies. Peripatetic music teaching is organised by North Lincolnshire Council Music Support service each April, for the following academic year. Instruments can be hired from the music support service. These lessons are normally taught to individual or small group of children during school time. A rota system is used so that the children do not miss the same class lessons each half term. There are a range of different musical opportunities offered throughout the year. This year the music service is teaching children to play:

  • Guitar
  • Cello
  • Piano
  • Clarinet
  • Flute
  • Recorder

If your child is interested in learning an instrument, please approach me for more information and I will signpost you to the appropriate service.



The school choir will be restarting at the start of the Summer Term. I shall be offering the opportunity for children to join  in our hymn singing assembly next week (16.3.2017).

Through a recent music questionnaire; seeking pupil views of music, I have learnt that the pupils would like to receive a homework for this subject. I shall be setting each year group a music homework once a term, which I hope they will enjoy.

We recently held our very first Arts Assembly which was a great success and we are very proud of all of our children. Well done all!
