All children, regardless of their age or ability will have access to a broad and varied music curriculum.  Music is a practical subject which means that learning should be experienced by listening, evaluating, composing, and playing a range of music styles and musical instruments.  It focuses on developing children's imagination and creativity, building up pupils' knowledge, skills and understanding.  It is a unique way of communicating that can inspire and motivate children.  It gives an opportunity for personal expression and can play in important part in the personal development of an individual.  Children have the opportunity to become part of an ensemble and to learn to sing and play a range of instruments.

Singing and music are an essential part of any primary curriculum, and it is within the capability of every teacher in every school to deliver great music lessons.

At Oakfield we use Sparkyard Music Curriculum, which provides a clear sequence of musical activities. With fabulous Out of the Ark songs at its heart, it uses a skills-based approach where key musical concepts and themes are developed and revisited across the year groups, building on knowledge and understanding at every stage.

Each term is organised into progressive steps and within each step there is a selection of fun, inspiring lessons to choose from.

We also give children access to a wide variety of instruments,and study music from many cultures.  In addition to our classroom music lessons, we have additional tuition from Accent Music Hub:


  • Year 4 : Guitar 
  • Year 5 : Brass and woodwind instruments
  • Year 6 : Taiko drumming.
