Learning through music at Greenleas
Our music curriculum aims to provide all pupils with an enjoyable, high quality music education which engages and inspires children to develop a life-long love of music from different eras and cultures. We see a music curriculum that increases self-confidence, curiosity, creativity and imagination and provides opportunities for self-expression and sense of personal achievement.
We use the ‘Charanga Musical School’ scheme of work which offers a topic based approach to support children’s learning in music. Charanga provides a classroom- based participatory and inclusive approach to music learning. Throughout the scheme, children are actively involved in using and developing their singing voices, using body percussion and whole body actions, and learning to handle and play classroom instruments effectively to create and express their own and others’ music.
Our aim is for our pupils to:
- Have a positive attitude and feel enthusiastic about music.
- Enjoy a broad range of quality musical experiences.
- Feel safe and confident to apply their music skills.
- Meet the requirements of the National Curriculum as fully as possible and for children to reach the highest possible standard of achievement.
- Learn about music in a cross-curricular fashion and to raise standards across the school.
- All feel confident to enjoy and learn about music using resources provided.
- Feel inspired to be part of and perform as part of a team.
