The school uses the online Charanga Scheme of work, which covers the National Curriculum programmes of study and on-going skills for Music.
A curriculum overview for each year group is provided in a Charanga folder located in each year group. In Year 4 Charanga lessons are replaced by the Whole Class Instrument Teaching programme provided for by Services for Education, where every child learns an instrument. Aims / Vision Music plays a vital role in children’s development: learning to sing and keep rhythm helps develop co-ordination; it gives them a way to express themselves and to discover their creativity and potential through music making. Our curriculum ‘Charanga’ aims to deliver all these objectives and more; it is an integrated, practical, exploratory and child-led approach to musical learning. The interrelated dimensions of music thread through the units to encourage the development of musical skills as the learning progresses through listening and appraising, differing musical activities (including creating and exploring) and performing. Every child at our school has the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, and to learn how to sing and use their voices expressively.
