The Music 'Big Ideas'


The ‘Big Ideas’ relate to elements within a subject discipline or refer to important concepts that contribute to pupils’ personal and social development. It is essential that the ‘Big Ideas’ within each subject are understood by the children and become part of their common classroom language. In music, these 'Big Ideas' are:


  • Appraising
  • Experimentation
  • Performance



In partnership with Soundstorm music education hub, Heatherlands were delighted to welcome King Brass to our school for two incredible performances! King Brass are a fun 5 piece brass-band that deliver workshops and perform a range of family classics on a range of brass instruments, vocals and percussion. The highlight of the band is an enormous sousaphone (like a big tuba) which was bigger than some of the children! The children enjoyed clapping along and even playing along on some percussion instruments of their own. What a treat!
