Music is a highly valued aspect of the curriculum. Our music curriculum engages and inspires children to develop a love of music and showcase their talents as musicians. We encourage children to perform in the school assembly which not only builds their self-confidence but inspires others to want to achieve in the same way.
Our music curriculum is divided into six main steps throughout the year and children focus on a specific genre each term. The activities and games cover the music dimensions through singing and playing instruments, and listening and creating music which is based around a specific song. Children have the opportunity to play tuned and untuned instruments and develop an understanding of musical composition.
We follow the Charanga Musical School programme. Each Unit of Work comprises the of strands of musical learning which correspond with the national
curriculum for music:
1. Listening and Appraising
2. Musical Activities
a. Warm-up Games
b. Optional Flexible Games
d. Playing instruments
Further enrichment activities take place throughout the year which involves the choir and Djembe drumming provided by Leicestershire music.
