Music overview and Music Intent Statement

At Cinnamon Brow, music is important to us. We believe it helps to increase creativity, confidence and self-esteem, as well as contributing to the overall well-being of our children. Musicality begins with our youngest children and serves as a wonderful tool in which to help us explore, learn and create.


Our curriculum aims to create a love of music through listening, appraising, performing and composing within different musical genres.  We see music as an inclusive language which can be accessed by all, helping to develop each child's creativity, confidence and self-esteem.   We teach our music curriculum over a two year rolling cycle from key stage one upwards and a yearly pattern within the Early Years, allowing for the progression and development of each individual child's musicality and skills.

Look at what we have been learning in music!

Finding your username is easy.  It is your first initial and surname with no capitals or hyphens, followed by the letters cb for Cinnamon Brow.  Your username is all in lower case with no capital letters at all.

For example:

Betty Johnson would be:       bjohnsoncb

If your first name has a hyphen in it, just use the first initial. 

e.g. Lilly-Mae Brown would be:       lbrowncb

For surnames with hyphens you need to take it out.

If there is another child in the school with the same inital and surname as you, your teacher may contact you to give you a slightly different username.
