Our Music curriculum allows pupils to listen and appraise, perform and compose music from a variety of styles and genres while developing knowledge and understanding of the key elements which make up Music. Our music curriculum is designed to introduce pupils to a broad repertoire of music from popular music and music from around the world. We use the engaging Charanga music education schemes which are fun, holistic, differentiated, spiral approach to music teaching and learning. Songs are at the heart of each lesson, drawing out all the elements of musical learning from interacting with those songs. Schemes are integrated, practical, exploratory and child-led approach to musical learning. The curriculum has been designed so pupils can weave 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.

Music has the opportunity to bring people together and we want our pupils to connect with others and realise their creative potential.

Students will be given opportunities to play a range of instruments including piano, rock band instruments and world instruments such as Samba and Bongos. Pupils will develop and gain the skills and knowledge required to compose, perform or appreciate musical works along with a wealth of experience in accessing music making on a range of instruments. The units have been designed to equip pupils with the technical skills and creativity to compose and perform. We aim for an inclusive curriculum irrespective of abilities that motivates pupils to participate and communicate.

Each project focuses on different themes to ensure continued interest in the subject as well as acquiring new knowledge. Lessons will develop understanding of musical concepts through a repetition-based approach to learning. Learning about the same musical concept through different musical activities enables a more secure, deeper learning and mastery of musical skills.
