Music is a universal language that embodies one of the highest forms of creativity. A high-quality music education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of music and their talent as musicians, and so increase their self-confidence, creativity and sense of achievement.
Music lessons are taught with a specialist music teacher on a rotation basis alongside the Charanga scheme of work. This embodies all of the musical elements children will need in order to progress their musical abilities along with broadening their musical horizons.
By the end of KS1 we aim to begin to develop a love of music. Children begin to develop the skills of singing, playing a range of instruments and composing. Children will begin to have an understanding of the different elements on music and develop a sense of enjoyment in music.
Children continue to follow the Charanga scheme of work and further develop their skills of singing, playing a range of instruments and composing using appropriate notation. Pupils explore many different styles of music and become increasingly independent in their choices of instruments, using both tuned and un-tuned.
