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.

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.
