Music Curriculum

To learn music is to learn a whole new langugage. Anon

We currently subscribe to Charanga for our Music curriculum. More information can be found here: Charanga - Primary music curriculum, Secondary & Instrumental music.

For the academic year 2020/21 we have used the adapted curriculum which takes into account the fact that indoor singing is unlikely to be permitted, at least for the majority of the year. 

  Reception Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4


My Stories- nursery rhymes and action songs 

Hey You!- pulse, rhythm, pitch, rap 

I Wanna Play in a Band- rock, ensemble 

Glockenspiel 1- play and read C, D, E, F 

Mamma Mia- pop, structure, style, glockenspiel 


Our World- pulse and pitch 

In the Groove- different styles of music 

Zootime- pulse, rhythm, pitch 

The Dragon Song- pop, rhythm, play instrumental parts

Each week we introduce a piece of music to pupils. We usually do this during Monday's assembly. This year has started with no mass gatherings at school, which means no assemblies. Music is introduced via virtual assemblies which are played into classrooms. The music is introduced through those assemblies. This piece of music is then played during lunchtimes, as well as the music introduced in previous weeks. Pupils are therefore exposed to a range of musical genres, artists, composers and musicians. Below is the list of music we have introduced pupils to since September 2019. September 2020 began with Stand by Me by Ben E King. We feel this is fitting following the Covid-19 pandemic we have all experienced.
