About this course

KS3 – music

Our course

Music is a project-based course.  In project-based courses students learn and develop products for real world application thought engagement with sustained and independent enquiry.

PBL courses focus on: –  

  • Approaches to learning (21stcentury skills) transferrable skills 
  • Learning objectives
  • A big question or key concept
  • Regular assessment opportunities 
  • Enquiry questioning
  • Promoting a variety of ways thought which students can demonstrate understanding

KS3 music is taught by a specialist music teacher. All lessons incorporate a mixture of historical and social aspects of music, alongside listening, composing, performing, appraising and evaluation activities. Students are taught in mixed groups of students ranging from year 7 to year 9.

In project-based courses students learn and develop products for real world application thought engagement with sustained and independent enquiry.

Our music courses are designed to inspire a love and an appreciation of all things musical. Throughout the year, a series of topics are taught half termly, enthusing our students, but also growing their musical competence at the same time. We would like to equip our students with the key critical thinking, problem solving and creative skills they will use daily across all of their subjects, developing their curiosity and ability to research, present and deliver a project.

We aim to build strong foundations for our students so they can confidently move onto the year 10 and 11 assured course, music & culture. Our courses introduce them to the importance of social and historical context within various musical genres, and closer, analytical research and reflection.

Student progress is measured by both formative and summative assessments. Formative assessments take place regularly and in a variety of formats ranging from group discussions and collaboration, written tasks, quizzes, compositions, presentations, and performance. Students complete one summative assessment each half-term in which they are required to demonstrate their understanding of a topic by creating or analysing a musical product.
