Formative assessment shall help to promote learning and develop competence in the subject. The pupils demonstrate and develop competence in music in Years 1 and 2 when they take part in and perform singing games, sing, dance and play instruments, when they make music, experiment and describe musical expressions, and when they listen, relate to and present musical experiences.
The teacher shall facilitate for pupil participation and stimulate the desire to learn by allowing the pupils to listen, play, question and use their senses in ways that develop their subject-related understanding, give them the opportunity to express themselves and contribute to a sense of mastering. The teacher and pupils shall be in dialogue about their development in music. The pupils shall have the opportunity to experiment in the subject. With the competence the pupils have demonstrated as the starting point, they shall have the opportunity to express what they believe they have achieved, and what they have done better than before. The teacher shall provide guidance on further learning and adapt the teaching to enable the pupils to use the guidance provided to develop their competence in the subject.
