Schemes of Work
In Key Stage 3 (years 7 and 8) we aim to deliver a broad experience of music and music making in line with the expectations of the National Curriculum (2013).
There are two music lessons a week which is divided into one classroom lesson and one instrumental lesson.
All pupils are assessed in the following areas.
- Performing - solo and ensemble.
KS3 Music will prepare pupils for further study such as GCSE and A Levels.
Pupils have the option of choosing GCSE Music in Y9. Pupils will have assessments in Performing, Composing and Listening.
|Performing 30%||Pupils will need to do a solo performance and an ensemble performance on their chosen instrument.|
|Composing 30%||Pupils will need to compose a piece of music related to a set brief and will need to create a composition with no brief.|
|Listening 40%||Pupils will have an exam based on four areas of study in which they will need to answer questions based on 8 set works and an unfamiliar piece of music.|
