Welcome toBilton Infant School‘Be the best we can be’


What do we want our KS1 music curriculum to achieve?

  • Use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and rhymes
  • Play tuned and untuned instruments musically
  • Listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live and recorded music
  • Experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the interrelated dimensions of music.

How do we fulfil this in KS1?

Music is taught as a discrete subject, by music specialists.  


It covers different topic based themes and includes all pupils and provide them with the opportunity to be challenged.


  • 6 blocks of specialist planned Music teaching for Years 1-2.
  • Knowledge based with skill development.
  • Focus on core areas of study: performing, composing and the study of compositions.
  • References to key musicians, styles and compositions that have influenced music as we know it.
  • Focus on high-quality development of children as musicians.
