Do Kapow Primary’s Music units offer full national curriculum coverage?
Kapow Primary offers full coverage of the KS1 and KS2 Music curriculum, including EYFS. This easy-to-reference document shows how we have achieved this, and maps our units to the statutory requirements for the subject.
The content of Kapow Primary’s Music units has been categorised into four key strands: Performing; Listening; Composing; and The history of music, with one overarching strand: Inter-related dimensions of music. We have plotted our Music units against the Development matters statements and the Early learning goals for EYFS, and the national curriculum statements for KS1 and KS2 Music, and identified which of the strands each unit covers.
We have also added a section to show cross-curricular links within each unit.
The result? A handy guide for teachers, school leaders, parents and outside bodies, clearly demonstrating how Kapow Primary’s Music units provide full and balanced coverage of statutory requirements not only in Music, but in the wider curriculum too!Read more
