The teaching of music in our school follows the aims of the National Curriculum. We want children to experience music by way of practical engagement in performing, composing and appraising. Children are taught to internalise music to develop aural memory and the emphasis is placed on sound before symbol. Singing and work with rhythm play an important part in the development of musical skills. All children have opportunities to sing within lessons, in weekly singing assemblies and in musical productions. We use ‘Charanga’ as our main music teaching resource.
