National Curriculum Purpose of Study
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. As pupils progress, they should develop a critical engagement with music, allowing them to compose, and to listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon.
How is Music Taught at Colville Primary School?
Music is taught in whole class regular sessions throughout the school year. The core of the curriculum content comes from the Charanga Music Scheme. We like the way the Charanga scheme builds on a spiral curriculum model which allows children to revisit fundamental ideas in the interrelated dimensions of music and to increase the challenge over time. This curriculum is fully inclusive to children with SEND. As children enter different year groups, the curriculum builds on the previous learning and adds complexity through wider pitch range, more complex rhythms and lyrics, singing in rounds, adding harmonies and developing performance skills. We also facilitate individual and group lessons on a range of musical instruments with third party providers.
