Our intention is that Music in school will engage and inspire pupils to develop a life-long love of music, raise aspirations and give children the opportunity to explore the world beyond their immediate environment. Through the teaching and learning of Music our intent is for children to explore, collaborate and develop their talent as both singers and musicians. This in turn will increase their self-confidence, well-being, creativity and sense of achievement.
Music in school follows a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum through Charanga. The Charanga scheme of work ensures a wide exposure to different genres of music, with lots of practical opportunities for the children to explore and develop both as musicians and singers.
Music is taught weekly throughout school. Weekly lessons ensure all children have the opportunity to develop their skills in singing, instrumental work, composition, performance and the appreciation of music.
Singing Assemblies are held once a week and are often the basis of celebratory assemblies including Harvest, Christmas and Easter.
Children in Key Stage 1 have the opportunity to join the after school club choir and Year 2 children have the opportunity to learn how to play the recorder in an after school club.
