What is Sing Up Music?

Sing Up Music provides primary schools with the foundation to deliver a creative programme of high-quality classroom music activity. It sets out the skills, knowledge, and understanding to be gained by all pupils at each stage of learning, including the Early Years Foundation Stage. Sing Up’s music curriculum, with a scheme of work for each year group from Nursery to Year 6, represents a progressive set of teaching resources that meets the requirements of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (Expressive Arts), the National Curriculum for Music and suggested approaches of the Model Music Curriculum (Singing, Listening, Composing, Performance/Instrumental Performance).

Sing Up Music supports a fully-integrated approach to musical development, connecting the interrelated strands of singing, playing, performing, composing, improvising, listening, and appraising.


How often should Music be taught?

Music should be taught weekly in Key Stage 1.


How is Music assessed?

Every unit has learning outcomes. Intended to inform teaching, they are not assessment statements. For assessment purposes, teachers should aim to become familiar with the intended outcomes for their class. Over time, with frequent reference to the year group outcomes, teachers should be able to say who in their class is achieving in line with expectation (‘most children will’), who is struggling, and who is showing aptitude.

When looking at unit learning outcomes, you can expect that some children from all the age groups in the class will achieve the ‘most children will… ’ outcomes, some will require more support and some will need further challenge.


We also have weekly singing assembly and topic related songs in class.  Children have the opportunity to perform at our Christmas productions and our Year 2 Leavers' productions.
