Music is an integral part of the school curriculum providing an important cultural and aesthetic dimension.  Our aim is to ensure that all pupils gain progressive musical experiences involving performing, composing and listening and appraising in accordance with the National Curriculum.

           rhymes

  • play tuned and untuned instruments musically

  • listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live and recorded

           music

  • experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the inter-related dimensions

           of music.

 

Key Stage 2

Pupils should be taught to:

  • play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical

           instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression

  • improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related

           dimensions of music

  • listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory

Teaching and learning

Music is taught from Years 1 -6 using the online scheme ‘Charanga’ (www.charanga.com)

“The Charanga Musical School Scheme provides teachers with week-by-week lesson support for each year group in the school. It is ideal for specialist and non-specialist teachers and provides lesson plans, assessment, clear progression, and engaging and exciting whiteboard resources to support every lesson.

The Scheme supports all the requirements of the new National Curriculum and is absolutely in line with published Ofsted guidance.

The learning within this scheme is based on: Listening and Appraising; Musical Activities - creating and exploring; and Singing and Performing.” – Charanga.com
